    You wont have TRIM in RAID, but you will have GC when the disks are idle so you will be fine as long as you log off the system and let it sit at the logon screen for a hour once a week or so.

    What you mention is Tony TRIM, here is more info on how to do that, it's not actual TRIM though just a way to clean things up
    Guide A simple guide for gen1 owners( Apex, solid, core V1/V2) or raid array owners who want to consolidate free space and clean the remaining Nand on the drives. OCZ gen2 drives..Vertex, Agility, Solid2, TURBO owners with FW 1.5 you do not need this.

    I would RAID them for sure, GC will keep things going just fine!

    Well Intel made a mistake in wording in some release notes, which should be mentioned in that thread, so there is still not TRIM in RAID as of yet.

    GC will do you fine, I use 2 SSD's in RAID for a while and never had any slow downs
