Raid 0 performance benefits

I decided to make the switch from win 7 to win 8.1 I installed windows 8.1 on my newly built rig a few months ago and I made quite the effort to learn it & give it a fair try.
Boot time is slow but that is to be expected because I am booting off an LSI MegaRaid SAS 9271-8i
My operating system is on 8 SAMSUNG 840 EVO 120GB SSD’s in a raid 0
All system and user temp files, Cache files, and VM paging files are in a 5GB Ram drive
All me Videos, Documents and music are on separate drives.
All my Programs are on a 1TB hard drive.

Question
I have a 2 Port SATA 6 Gbps PCI Express SATA Controller Card and 2 SAMSUNG 840 EVO 120GB SSD’s in the closet.
Do you think I will have any performance benefits if I were to install my 2port SATA card in a raid 0 and transfer my programs to it?

Seriously? that will slow your boot time.. you sys has to populate the 5GB RAM drive before it can do much.. be very fast once done.. but slow your boot time..

you sure you know what you are doing?

Yes I have 8 120GB SSD's in a RAID 0, and yes I know that a ram drive will slow boot time. But I do not care about boot time, my computer stays on most of the time. My concern is the performance, which is why I am thinking of installing my 2 port SATA card in a raid 0 and transfer my programs to it.
Do you think I will have any performance benefits if I were to install my 2port SATA card in a raid 0 and transfer my programs to it?
