Question about hardrives for gaming laptops

So I am getting a new Sager gaming laptop from Trying to figure out what kind of hard drive configuration I should go with. I don't use a lot of space on laptops so basically should I get a 320 GB hard drive and that's it, or should I get two 320 GB hard drives and use the RAID 0 setup. Is it worth the extra money to use RAID 0 for playing high graphic games or no?

A RAID 0 set up will help in regard to load times, i.e. levels and such, but it won't increase your FPS. For higher FPS I'd be worried about the GPU. If you do go with the RAID 0 array, keep an external around as back up just in case the array breaks down the line.
