2 HDDs for Raid0 + 1 HDD for Backup

Hi there!

I'm going to buy new HDDs for my PC. I need some opinions..

My goal:
2 HDDs + Raid0 = where I'm going to install softwares/games and general use.
1 HDD without Raid(?) = where I'm goint to keep my general and important stuffs.

For doing the Raid0 setup, I don't care much about size, just perfomance and reliability.

Rate these setups please:
Raid0 setup
2x Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB
2x Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB

Backup/Storage setup
1x Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB+
1x Samsung (One of those "Green/Eco" type)

(Didn't put Velociraptors because it's kinda expensive... :??: )

Suggestions? Opinions? Please, feel free!
