Windows 7: Is this a good gaming computer build?

Yes, back when SSD's were crazy expensive, it was common to see people with 2 - 64gb drives in RAID 0 instead of a 128/256gb drive. Those times are over and the sweet spot in pricing falls between 128-256gb capacities. The prices have fallen to under $1/GB in most cases and have made larger drives much cheaper, eliminating the need to buy 2 SSD's and throw them in RAID 0 just for the extra capacity. I still have yet to find a reason to RAID 0 SSD's. If you have a spare, find something else to put it in........an old system someone is using, a laptop laying around, something.
