The RAID will be a bit faster. However, RAID adds extra points of failure, and will cost more.

What's normally recommended is a large mechanical HDD for data, and a smaller SSD for OS/programs.

raid config is cheaper.....2tb black comes for around 150 where as raid config retails for around 110

Sheesh; WD is charging tons for the Black drives.

What's it for? If it's for general use, this is the best option:
