I am going to replace a RAID0 configuration (two Seagate Barracudas) with a 256 GB Samsung SSD. I have several tools that will allow me to do this, including Acronis Backup and Recovery with Universal Restore. The RAID 0 is on a Highpoint 3520 SATA hardware RAID controller. I am running Windows 7 (64 bit).
My question is this: Would I be better off keeping the single SSD on the Highpoint controller, or put it on one of the onboard SATA controllers? My motherboard is a Tyan Thunder S2915-E, and both the Highpoint and mb SATA ports are 3 Gb/s.
