Move from one server to another, SBS 2008, use RAID or SSD

My current server uses intel xeon 3230 and intel board DQ965GF, which is a real turd when it comes to the onboard RAID controller.  Now that I have been struggling with the RAID interface, I want to plan for a change.  Other than the issues with RAID controller, this server works fine, so I am thinking I want to perhaps simply buy a RAID card, or stop using RAID and use an SSD drive instead and have a backup policy that is quick to implement.  I don't know anything, so just letting you know.  I have read about backup solutions that make restoring a working server to a new, different hardware set up  a seamless thing. Sounds a little too good to be true?  The idea I would like to explore is using this same server but use an SSD instead of the RAID and have a daily backup that can be restored to a new SSD if/when there is failure.
