    Decided to go with AMD this time around and came out with this build for a good price. Kind've disappointed at my choice of PSU but it did have a 4.5 rating from 550+ people so Ive decided to try it. Any feedback is welcome and also a question.

    I've heard that a RAID 0 configuration for SSD decreases performance due to " TRIM. " Is this proven and would they be better off without RAID ?

    Antec 900 // Amazing cooling, very good past experiences.
    Phenom II X4 955 // Trying for 4.0 stable for fun and 3.6 - 3.8 for daily use.
    Asus M4A EVO // 6x Sata 6.0 / USB 3.0 / 880? Chipset.
    HIS IceQ 4670 // Don't do much gaming and saved me a lot of cash.
    G.SKILL DDR3 1333, 4GB // High ratings / performance reviews.
    2x Corsair Nova 32GB SSD // New to SSD's, leaning towards RAID 0.
    Zalman 9700 LED // Very good past experiences.
    Raidmax 530W // Don't know why I slacked here .

    Suggestions ?

    Welcome to PUREOC!

    You're already purchased the components so you have to live with it.

    Here are my 2 cents;

    1). for now a single SSD are better than 2 in RAID0 due to no support from TRIM. You are right about the degrading if you don't keep the SSD maintanence it. There's a work around to keep it in the top performance but it's not worth it all the hassle.

    2).
    Raidmax 530W // Don't know why I slacked here
    because you were thinking not to spend any more money if you don't have too.
    Well, a good quality powerful PSU will last from one generation of the upgrades to another.

    Thank you for the welcome and feedback.

    Is TRIM used in Windows XP or just Windows 7 ? I was thinking of running Windows XP
