I want to raid-0 with two Samsung spinpoint f4's
the drives will be in raid-0 with either 32 or 64k stripes.

the main question i have is
would it be better for me to keep my os on a drive by itself or would it also see an increase in load times from being on the raided drives?
or should i create two partitions in the raid
Partition-1= os /stripe size= small like 4-8k and
partition-2 = games area/ larger stripe size= 64-128k?
what would i benefit best from?

looks like i have had the decision made a lot simpler for me as my bios only supports
64k and 128k stripes. i set it to 64k and everything is BLAZING fast!
