    SSD/RAID set up - limited budget.


      I'm building a PC with the following specs for 1080p/2k editing on PPro and AE CC:


      CPU: Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz

      Memory: G.Skill Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory

      Storage 01: Crucial M550 256GB SSD

      Storage 02: Crucial M550 256GB SSD

      Storage 03: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 7200RPM HDD

      Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 (4GB VRAM)


      I intend to do a striped RAID setup (RAID0) on the two SSDs.


      Would it be worthwhile getting a third SSD exclusively for the OS (Windows 8.1) and running a software RAID on the two other SSDs?


      Is firmware RAID an option for this configuration and if so is it in any way advantageous over the software RAID setup?


      Thanks in advance.
