This poll is now closed.
This is just a random poll just to see what most people would choose in this situation.
I'm not in this situation, I'm just curious.

I can't ever go back to a HDD for my boot/gaming drive. I'm spoiled. SSD all the way.

RAID 0 is iffy unless you have a backup solution, and even then there's the issue of making sure it works if you replace your motherboard or whatever. It's pretty easy to **** things up.
Are you ready?

Second choice. I already have an SSD and I need space more than I need speed right now

My motherboard doesn't support RAID, but I would still take the two 500GB HDDs.

In isolation, neither. Raid 0 needs a backup system in place, and 256GB isn't nearly enough storage for me.
Fan of metal? Don't mind covers? Check out my youtube and give me some feedback
