Does anybody know if I will loss any performance if I partition 2 320gb hard drives in Raid 0. I am going to use 500gb for windows 7 and the rest for winxp. Please help if you can. Thanks! :)

The inner-cylinders vs. outer-cylinders issue will make one partition slightly slower than the other, but you would need very good tools and much patience to actually detect it consistently (look up "short-stroking" if you are interested).

Standard warning: In RAID 0, if either drive or the controller fails, all data is gone forever. Back up. Frequently.
