I have a similar RAID0 in my work computer and I am using it
for some software tests and benchmarks where reliability
is not important.

The actual performance is very dependent on specific operations.

What you are planning to do with it?

Depends how you define 'performance boost'. A RAID0 setup will improve load times (Windows startup, level loads in games, etc.) but it will not improve system responsiveness or FPS in games.

In terms of the drives youve chosen, you will be fine with them.
