    Question GA-X58A-UD3R SSD Advice?

    Hello everyone,

    Well I just picked bought two OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD3-2VTX90G drives and would like to raid 0 them and run them as my OS drive.

    Using the 6 ICH10R ports is out of the question because I currently am running a Raid 50 through them. So this leaves me with the Gigabyte Sata 2 ports and the Marvell Sata 3 ports.

    I would like to use the Marvell ports but have heard some bad things using them for SSDs.

    My question is how should I go about doing this?
    Do I setup the raid in windows using the Marvell software then reinstall windows on the new raid?
    Is there a way to setup the RAID out side of windows similar to the ICH10R RAID?
    What drivers should I be using?
    Should I just use the Gigabyte controller for raid?
    Should I run the newest beta bios FF8 before doing this?

    Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    EDIT: Feel like idiot I found the section in the bios to turn RAID on the Marvell controller. But still is it ok to use the Marvell controller with the newest BIOS and Drivers?
