raid 0 is no good if you have data you need.
once again, write times on an OS drive wont matter nearly as much as the read time. which is WAY faster.
i wouldnt get a 500gb and store all my data on it, i'd get a 32gb and put my OS on it.

imo ssd's are too expensive and only good for portable rough handling drives but again there are usb flash drives which are way cheaper than ssd's so just wait until ssd's get cheaper
