Whoever was talking about minimal size on SSD's needs to rethink the situation.

There are 120 GB SSD's available at the local Fry's Electronics for $230 with a 550 MB/sec read, 500 MB write speed.

If you can get 3 of those running in a RAID-0 array, that's 360GB running at 1650 MB/sec read, 1500 MB write.

I think 360 GB is adequate unless you have a collection of downloaded movies in addition to games.

I'm quite sure you could have a 4'th SATA slot HDD of 500GB or more to back up anything you don't currently need.

Again, unless you are currently running the latest Intel motherboard and the latest Intel SSD (which came out like a month or so ago,) running SSDs in a RAID is a Really Bad Idea because it disables TRIM. Without TRIM, your SSDs will fill up with useless junk data and eventually lose a significant chunk of their performance.
