which of these possibilities would you recommend:
1x128gb
2x64gb
or 4x32gb?

Considering that those SSD would have the same performance, the more the better, so 4 * 32 gb will be faster than the 2 others choice, but, the incovenient is that if any one of the 4 ssd fail you lost all the data (RAID 0).
Also, SATA 6 gb/s may be required as SATA II could be the bottleneck for a RAID 0 of 4 SSD, except if you install a SAS controller as Opti did.

As you can see at Opti benchmark, the 4k one is just terrible, this is due a low IOPS, few SSD brand does mention it and focus on mentionning high speed write and read, but IOPS is what make a SSD performant and definitly its price (for the same Gb capacity), but you wouldn't mind the IOPS for a media usage (video, sound) or anything which doesn't require a constant read and write of the disk (like a SQL server).

But surely Opti does boot his Windows quite fastly.

Sry,-no recommendation.Ssd´s are definitely too expensive.I paid 550€ for 2x64gb and the controller.--So absolutely no sense.
I bought it only for benchmark and because im a Hardwarefreak.

And thank you Osiris,--I could´nt have say it better.

Definitly, no sense is what describe SSD today and its price, i'm waiting for that instead:

And thank you Osiris,--I could´nt have say it better.

the performance is not the only reason I want to upgrade, its noise. an ssd would allow me to get rid of the system harddrive so I would only have 2 harddrives left and can even add a third one sometime, otherwise I´d end up with 4 and that´s loud. you can get good 128gb ssds for 200-300€. I´ll be building a new pc this summer so I thought maybe using ssd/s for the system drive would be a good idea.

I dont care if my raid 0 fails, there is no important data on the system drive, just windows and programs. I´ll only have to reinstall everything if the raid fails. the only loss would be my firefox bookmarks that were created after the last backup of them.

My latest changes.

Im waiting for the cpu to arrive tomorrow morning, the only thing left to power it on. (i5 760)


Also, im getting a Corsair H50 cooler soon, couldnt afford it right now, maybe next month.

I also changed the case for an antec 300 while ago.

Ill update the pictures tomorrow.


Edit: New pics, assembly complete.
For about 4 years maybe, that i havent used a stock cooler, stock cooler sucks....
Cant wait to get the cpu cooler so i can OC this crap decently..

The 560TI is just about the only sensible choice in the price range.
I bought one to replace a dead BFG factory overclocked 9800.
I plumped for the Gigabyte version ~

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3707#sp

They do a faster one but the particular model I have has a bit of headroom for some more overclocking. This particular model has very efficient cooling and you can hardly hear it.

Yes, they have the SOC model (2 versions of the SOC actually, one with 950mhz core, another with 1Ghz, this 1 is hard to find here.) wich is a heck of a 560ti card. probably the best 560ti model out there.

The HD6950 is also a good choice in this price range.

But im in love with EVGA... hehe.

working at 900mhz after an hour so i installed it. Fan at 50%, wich is very quiet, i barely hear it, the case fans actually do more noise, 69Cº max temp.
Coulndt get 950mhz stable, 935mhz were the max stable i got, but it was some really quick overclocking with no care at all. have to do some testing to see if it really handles 950mhz or not.

Quieter and fresher than the previosly EVGA GTX460 i posted. and the performance increase compared to it, can be quite significant, depending on game. Overall, is quite a good performer. so far the best card i had.
Solid performance, relative low cost for the performance, very nice temps, and silent. these 2 last things i apreciate a lot, so im very happy with it.

Cheers
