Thanks for the input!
I would stick with that, and raid them up again. I have the Samsung 830 SSD also, and it is a very good drive. You could probably wait and catch that on sale. I picked it up for 60, Samsung is coming(came?) out with a new SSD to replace this one, so retailers will be unloading these. Here is a guide to get your windows PC optimized for the SSD
, it is a pretty good starting point. Also the Samsung SSD comes with a optimizer disc, it also helps and is very easy to use.
