An update of my new SSD upgrades. Replaced the Intel SSDs for a pair of Samsung 840 250gb in raid 0.

Very nice!

Do you notice any difference between using an SSD and a RAM-disk?

The ramdisk is really used as a scratch drive for things like temp folders, file unzipping workspace, browser cache, etc. The SSD is for installing the operating system and applications on. In reality, a ramdisk isn't really necessary at all. I just created it for the sake of putting the ram to use. Saving and loading the ramdisk into an image for persistent data leads to unacceptably increased boot and shutdown times (counted by minutes).
