Default 2 small SSD or 1 large SSD?

I've been looking to install an ssd on my new build, but I'm having troubles deciding which of these products I should go with. The most I'm looking to spend on a SSD or a pair of SSDs is $500 CDN.

2x Intel 335 Series Jay Crest 240GB
Newegg.ca - Intel 335 Series Jay Crest SSDSC2CT240A4K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

1x Seagate 600 Series 480GB
Newegg.ca - Seagate 600 Series ST480HM000 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

1x Corsair Force Series GS 480GB
Newegg.ca - Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F480GBGS-BK 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)


Thank you for your help

Depends on your motherboard/CPU/OS.
Only the newest intel series 7 motherboards can provide TRIM support for RAID SSDs.

Intel confirms TRIM support for RAID0 SSDs - but only for Series 7 chipsets

windows 7 ssd raid 0 trim - Google Search

windows 8 ssd raid 0 trim - Google Search

I went with two smaller SSD's, one for OS (120 gb) and one for games/recording (250gb) and got away with spending less than $300 for both. OCZ and Samsung on those...

They're both set up on 6.0gb/s SATAIII
