That's not how u build RAID. If u use SSD, u don't need RAID.

All about RAID u need to know.

Raid 0 must use drives of identical capacities.

Setting up Raid 0 will erase the contents of both drives.

Raid 0 will not improve random read speed, which is important for most activities. Ssd will though.

Suggest getting a 60 or 120 gb ssd for windows and a 1tb drive for apps and storage.
