i5 3570k
Blu Ray Player/DVD Burner
Saphire 7950 Radeon
GS800 (bought for future crossfire use)
U24M12 1920x1200 24" IPS

Now heres what I need help with:

I want to install a RAID 0 setup with 2 of these hard drives just for my OS Windows 7
http://www.microcenter.com/product/406436/Ultra_Plus_SD...(SSD)

Then I want to also install a RAID 0 setup for all my stuff on 2 of these hard drives.
http://www.microcenter.com/product/347355/WD_Black_1TB_...

I am pretty sure I want to hook these up through the 6/gbs RAID. I am reading this has 4 slots. Am I right? Will these 4 total hard drives all work together?

Will this motherboard work perfectly with that? If not which will?
Z77 Pro4 LGA 1155 ATX Intel Motherboard

You think I will need 16gb of 2133 Ram or 8gb of the 2133 will work perfectly with this setup. I video game at high resolution not having many things open at once.

Am i forgetting anything??

I'm buying the 5$ for 2 year service on all of them incase anything breaks I can bring it back and get a new one. So don't worry about data loss or breaking down. Do not worry about writing speed on the OS SSD just READING speed. Cheapest Best Setup You Can Think or No??

As far as running RAID 0 for both your SSD's and HDD's, I don't see much point to it. You can get a Samsung 840pro for around that price, and it would be faster than those 2 SSD's. Same for the 1TB drive. You can get a 2TB drive from Seagate or Western Digital for cheaper than what it would cost you to buy 2 of those 1TB drives. Then again, that's up to you.
As for the RAM, 8 gigs would do you at those speeds, but if you want 16gigs, you can't go wrong with it.

I was also considering getting 1 Samsung 840 128gb
Then getting a RAID 1 setup with 4 7200 rpm HDD. Still will work??

I would agree with the above there is little point in setting up two separate Raid Arrays for what you need.

As for 8 or 16gig of ram that really comes down I think to price. 8gig will work just fine I went with 16gig on my i5 rig because the price was at the point that the difference was only a few dollars because it was on sale at the time.
