RAID 0 with 2 Samsung F3's or 3

Hi, Ive currently got 1 x 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3 Sata Drive and was thinking of upgrading to RAID 0 having either
2 x 1TB F3's Or 3 x 1TB F3's

I know RAID 0 is far better than just 1 drive alone but how much difference if any, of having 3 x Spinpoints in RAID 0 instead of 2 ?

...initially I was thinking of getting (due to budget) a Kingston SSDNow V-Series 128GB Drive, but as my Primary (OS) Partition is already at 80GB,
after formating the SSD I would only be left with around 112GB (am I right ?) so would probably fill up pretty quick.

My Specs are:

Intel Core i7 860 @ 2.80GHz
8 GB - G-Skill Ripjaws 1600 ( CL 7-8-7-24 )
Win 7 Pro - 64 bit
XFX Radeon HD 5850
