Windows 7: Thinking about RAID0

From above and the post mentioning the benchmark with RAID-0 Stripe on Dual SSD's

The REAL benefit with an SSD - is that it dang near scales in proportion to an even doubling of speed per SSD added with only a slight loss per added drive, up to an amount of around 6? I think it was.

As opposed to HDD's which give you a rough 30-50% increase in speeds, and it scales down quite proportionately to where its just a waste of space to be adding more.


Cost of course is the huge issue - you could do 5 HDD's in RAID for the price of a single SSD

And while the speeds do double...is it really beneficial for most people? Does it boot faster, launch typical applications faster, start games faster, etc?

And like you said, you have large costs associated with doing it this route. So, if most people won't really see that much gain in day-to-day activities..I'm not sure if going with a RAID 0 would really be worth it. If you were doing large file copies and such it would be super fast...but at 400-500MB/s..you could fill up 2 x 80GB drives in a matter of 2-3 minutes.
