There is generally no real world(vs. synthetic transfer rate benchmarks) performance advantage to raid of any kind.

There are some specific applications that will benefit, but
gaming is not one of them. Even if you have an application which reads one input file sequentially, and writes
it out, you will perform about as well by putting the input on one drive, and the output on the other.

Gepfelt is correct. AID0 is one of the last things you want to implement on a gaming system.

What does your gaming machine look like? You might be better off getting a faster CPU then a second drive.

Use raid 0 for conversion and rendering.
But a good 32MB cache hard drive will out perform the Raptor.

The only in game performance boost you get from RAID 0 is faster load times. Which means less time waiting for that little status bar to reach the end. Not worth spending a bunch of money on.
