Actually, just had it pointed out that you're doing a desktop build,
sorry, got confused :D
If you're doing a desktop, don't get an SSD.
Get several and plug them into an offboard RAID controller :D
(And you'll probably need that offboard controller, most motherboard
RAID controllers these days were designed for the lower HDD bandwidths
and you need a bit more oomph to cope with the higher data transfer
rates that SSDs can manage).
Built an i5 box using an SSD a while back with software RAID0; it ran
bloody fast, but a proper hardware RAID would have screamed along.
Quietly screamed, you understand - you couldn't tell the box was on if
it wasn't for the LED on the front, even when the box was sitting next
to your head at 0400 in a silent office.
