Actually, Dinesh, this is one of the rare times that I am pointing away from RAID. A four disk RAID0 is hazardously risky for a gamer with no backup capacity of equal or greater size.

RAID0+1 is an option if the current controller supports it though. And not a bad option at that.

Based on GB per $, I am waiting at least a year before adopting SSD into my configuration.
Hmmm.... but i dont think he needs 4 hdd to play games. do you?

No, I would not think so. I've been happily playing games on 1 hard drive for my entire life.

I've pretty much had a single hard drive for a single OS in my computer for as long as I can remember. Obviously not the same hard drive, but a single hard drive.

Could anyone help me find a good SSD in Ebay?
I mean, that has TRIM.

Cause i can't buy from NewEGG, and i can't find TorqX in Ebay

I think we discussing and mixing up 2 different things:

1. Data security - Raid1 would give some security but Raid0 with 4 drives is pretty hazardous. In any case, whether it is Raid or SSD I would always use an imaging program to make periodic backups to an external drive.
2. Speed - if you are looking for speed, nothing beats the SSD. Even at the current prices it is the best way to beaf up performance. The same amount of money invested in CPU, RAM or whatever will not match the increase of speed with an SSD. On one system I run Win7 off a Vertex and the speed is mind boggling.

There are only few SSDs that support Trim "natively" and they are pretty recent. I very much doubt that you'll find one on Ebay

Could you list some of those SSD's that supports trim natively?

Oh, and when i said raid 0, i meant like raid 3 ( i think thats the name )
On which 3 hard drivers work, and 1 serves as a backup.
However, that will only work if only ONE drive fails.

And i wanted so much speed in HDs because after having a Notebook HD with 4200 RPM i can't stand a slow HD anymore. :X

And, the price of 4x 250 GB = 2x500 GB = 1 TB

Edit: I also wanted to know if i can use 2x (Founts , power supply i don't know the Word in english ) like:
One 700MW to run the whole computer
Two 300MW to run in SLI

Is there a way I can set a key to choose which OS I want to run?
