We’ve been waiting the better part of a decade for SSD prices to drop and they have dropped somewhat. Often you find yourself a little cash strapped and can’t afford one of those infernally expensive PCI-E drives where you sign a contract to send your left arm in exchange for the drive. Hardware RAID is usually just out of reach of the average consumer and while hardware RAID cards are great they soon become outdated and an expensive paperweight. We’ll be using 2 x Visiontek Go Drives both 240GB drives (model 900512) on an Asus X99 PRO motherboard using the built-in Intel Rapid Storage Technology. Intels fancy words for RAID. We are using two drives and chipset limitations on most X99 boards are 6 drives in any RAID configuration. We’ve messed with RAID enough that we can tell you any combination of drives whose speed is about 1500MB/s is about all you want to use. Three 500MB/s drives top out the bandwidth on built-in RAID.
