Thinking about adding a second 150gb raptor to the system raid 1 or 0 Not sure yet.

Question is, Whats better
On board raiding software(Motherboard)

Or Using a Adaptec raid card.

I found a BNIB Adaptec 1220SA on my shelf.
Not sure if the card is any good for Raptors either.

Thanks for the help.

This is not a Raid card controlled with it's own processor, it's only to add more drive to a system , your on board Intel raid chip will do probably better . A good raid card will cost you more than 1 and even 2 SSD, so the choice is clear
