Raid 0 Ssd intel 520 240gb

Should I setup two Ssd intel 520 240gb in raid 0 mode in order to extract maximum performance?

I just ordered another, so now I have two. Trying to figure out if I run them as 480gb or 240gb. What's the best option? Will the speed increase be worth losing 240gb?

Mirroring will offer little to no performance advantage. Striping will boost performance but if one drive fails all data in the array is lost.

And the raid will not increase response times or 4kb read times, which is what an OS depends on most of the time. You will also lose the trim function of the OS. There is really little advantage to the raid of SSDs unless you are transferring 10GB files all day.

What's your suggestion to get 480gb without losing performance? I will also be running virtual xp.

Also I hear that the intel would accept trim regardless of the raid mode. Is this true? Can anyone confirm?

Is the raid from this motherboard good enough or should I get a raid card ? ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Use one for the OS and most used programs and the other for user data.

if that's true, I've never heard it. I'm not saying it isn't true, but is news to me. I would get confirmation of that, but you are still in a situation if either drive fails, you lose everything.
