I posted this earlier but worded it wrong. For gaming would a single 1TB Caviar Black SATA 6Gb/s better than (2) 150GB Velociraptors SATA 3Gb/s with RAID 0? Asus X58 Motherboard Thanks

the velociraptors are faster than the caviar black, but they are only as fast as the first gen SSDs the current SSDs are like 5 times faster.
your better off just getting a new SSD for speed and better off with the hard drive for storage.

Yes, because 1TB > 300GBs. 300GBs won't hold a lot of stuff these days. Not at 20+GBs per game.
