So, SSD's are pretty fast, and if you put 2 of them in a RAID0, if your controller is up to it, you can get double the performance!

So what if you use..... 24 SSD's?

Interestingly enough, this isn't because the drive is faster, although SSD's are, it's because the random seek times are 100 times faster, and this is what kills Vista and multitasking.

Funny enough I just read the following article. Take a deep breath as it's about 20 pages long but talks about every SSD drive on the market and the guy has done his research. Interesting stuff.

+1 on the Anandtech SSD coverage, goes into heaps more detail than most other tech sites and lays down the facts on performance.
