What would be the best bang for the buck? I couldn't find any benchmarks or speeds about hybrid sshd 's in raid 0. Is it better to get 2x1tb of normal or hybrid drives?

Well straight away you know that there are two downfalls to raid o

1) It is twice as expensive per gigabyte. Two 500GB Dirves is 1TB But you only get 500GB.
2)Twice the chance of loosing data. If one of the drive dies then tats it, game over all you data is long gone.

So best bang for buck, just get a single drive.
You will get better performance from Raid 0 if its a ssd or hd. As for performance data i have no idea but i know personally i would never do raid 0 it's just to risky for your data

Your first point is wrong, he is talking about RAID 0 in which performance is doubled (theoretically) and storage is the same. You have beem confused with RAID 1 and RAID 0.

Coming to the OP's question: RAID 0 SSHDs will be 10%-15% faster than RAID 0 HDDs.

Okay, but is it worth getting the hybrid drives? Or just normal hdd 's?

Depends if you are willing to play more for that 10-15 percent performance increase, I personally will just get couple WD Black and RAID 0 them.
