Re: cant decide on ssd
You should look at the read/write times and the IOPS (4k random read/write). The read/write is sequential data transfers (copying large files) which one doesn't normally do on a regular basis - especially on a SSD. The higher the IOPS, the faster you can read/write smaller files, which is done all the time. I'd go for a OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPS edition 256gb - or raid 0 with 120gb. Personally, that SSD is fast enough for me - I wouldn't bother with raid 0.
