Im looking add a main OS drive to a gigabyte GA-z68a-D3H-B3 motherboard. I already have an OCZ Agility 3 60MB and would like to add a Crucial M4 128GB as the OS drive. OCZ controller is sandforce SF 2281 and Crucial M4 is Marvel.
I need to do more research on RAID, but is this a good combination? I like the reliability record of the Crucial, and the OCZ came with the kit. Can these 2 SSDs work together, with or without RAID?
Thanks for any advice.

I wouldn't raid them. General rule of thumb for raid is the raid drives size defaults to the smallest drive. so if you mirrored them it would be a 60Gb drive and if you striped them it would be a 120Gb drive at the end.

Just use the 128Gb drive for OS and use the OCZ as storage for games or anything that needs speed not size.
