512GB Solid-State Drive Kit for Mac Pro
Solid-state drives have no moving parts and are capable of accessing data at speeds up to 215MB per second, which is up to twice the speed of hard drives. In addition, four solid-state drives working together combine to access data at up to 750MB per second. The result? Incredible performance at a range of data-intensive tasks, including up to 2x faster ProRes video encoding using solid-state drives compared with hard drives.*
Mac Pro includes four drive bays, allowing you to configure it with up to 8 terabytes of storage using 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s drives, up to 2 terabytes of storage using high-performance solid-state drives, or any combination of each type of drive. The cable-free, direct-attach drive solution lets you install and remove drives in a snap. To install a drive, you connect a simple drive carrier to the hard drive, then just slide it into place - no cables or connectors to cause you hassle. Removing the drive is just as easy. Every Mac Pro ships with four hard drive carriers. This solution is perfect if you ever share drives among different workstations at home or the studio.
Requires Mac Pro (Mid 2010) and Mac OS X v10.6.4 or later.

Hi, I have an 8-core Mac pro (early 2009) with the RAID card. Obviously I would have to buy two of these, and create a new set, but would that work?

Yes it will, it can fit your computer, if you either take out your HDD and replace it with a SSD or Yes it will, it can fit your computer, if you either take out your HDD and replace it with a SSD or Replace your Optical drive with a SSD to MacBook pro converter and SSD. ifixit.com is a awesome site, which can help you do this with guides. I highly prefer another SSD, then this. This one is very expensive. If you do not want your warranty to get avoided, then you should take it to Apple. If you do not have any warranty, then you should do this by yourself or take it to apple or anyway or another shop.
