Gigabyte H55 UD2H  compatable with SSD

Last Modified: 2015-02-25
I have a machine running with the gigabyte H55 mobo on windows 7 quite happily, last year the hard drive failed and so i did a fresh install with a seagate hybrid drive which gave excellant performance but but but windows update of all things wouldn't work and there were a couple of odd things happening. In the end i slammed in the standard sata 1TB seagate drive and all is well.
What we want to do is raid 1 array (mirror) the machine in case the hard drive fails again with the new drive being a SSD for performance.
So how on earth can i check what SSD the gigabyte board is compatible with, i have been on the gigabyte forum but to no avail.
Will a raid run with such a mismatch between a 120/250gb SSD and a standard mechanical drive.

Idea's anyone
