What is the largest size, RAID compatible, solid state drive on the market right now?

I want to build my own computer one day. I am thinking about building a tower as a home computer and i would want to set up a raid-5 with as many 3.5" SSDs as possible. Only thing discouraging me at the moment is the fact that most of the motherboards I'm coming across have like 4, 6, or 8 eSATA/SATA ports with different Gb/s.

The onboard raid controllers are only good if you use RAID 0 or RAID 1. If you want anything else, you need to get a separate RAID controller Card with its own processor and RAM. I have an Areca ARC-1882ix-12-2G. With this I have 2GB of onboard RAM and I can handle 12 SATA-III drives internally and still have and external SAS connector.

Now as to what level RAID, that depends alot on what you are going to use the RAID set for? RAID 5 isn't bad; however, a RAID 10 has better performance and better redundancy, but you would need a minimum of 4 drives and you only have actual storage of 2 of them.

As to SSD for your RAID, IMO, it is not worth it. SSD are extremely expensive compared to HDD. And in a RAID enviroment, you won't see that much of a performance difference, especially in a RAID 5. In a RAID 5, there is constant writing and rewriting to the disks and when it come to writing data, SSD are not as good as HDD. Now if this is to store Media files for playback then yes SSD are OK as you are only writing the files to the array once and after that it is entirely read. With about any other type of data, ie games, during the course of the playing the game, there are many files that are being updated, written to, etc

The largest SATA 3 SSD is a 1TB and that will cost you $2,300 per drive as compared to a HDD, WD Black Cavier 1TB, will cost you about $120 per drive. Oh yeah, almost all SSD's come in the 2.5" size drive not a 3.5"
