I don't know much about raid setup's but I am going for speed and my understanding is that a hardware card with two ssd's in raid 0 would be screaming fast.

Just remember that just because a RAID card is PCI or PCIe does not make it "hardware" RAID.

I love that vid. And those drives. They should have at least shown windows booting though.

I guess ure right. Seems like drives have been 7200rpm for so long. I know there are 10,000 rpm, etc, that are out now, but they're still so expensive. When will the faster speeds become mainstream?

They appear to following a trend of twice as much for half the price year over year so... (looks up prices on newegg)

based on this:

120GB OCZ Agility Series - $369

then in late 2010 256GB for $184
then in late 2011 512GB for $92

If I had to guess I'd say by Q1 or Q2 of 2011 SSD's will be at a price where I could stomach buying 2 or 3 of them to run in a RAID0 as my primary drive and actually get enough space for the resulting RAID config to be useful.

By that time another genration of SSD's will have been developed everything will be SATA3 and my 3 drive RAID0 will have virtually no access time and will give me about 1GB/s for data transfers... The future is looking good :)
