SSD Boot Drive and Stripping 2 spinning drives?

I am getting a 64GB Crucial M4 SSD. I will use it as my boot drive and use it for all my programs like firefox, MS word, photoshop, etc.

I am not going to be able to put all my games and user data on it so I was planning on getting two drives and stripping them. While I am talking about this what is the best way to stripe two drives? Just use windows?

I was looking at getting two of these for my drive stripping:

is that a good drive and is 16MB cache enough?

Thanks for the help,

  1. stripping even worth it these days? My SSD wont be able to hold everything and I just want good performance across the board so I thought this would be good.
  2. IMO, stripping mechanical drives for a secondary / storage drive really isn't worth it. You will see some improvement but when running a SSD as primary just not worth it (IMO).

    As for the hard drive, I would go with the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB for the same price. You could get two for 2TB or just use one and save some money.
  3. Stripping of the storage drive? What for? It's a really bad idea.
