Do not use RAID 0, small performance increase and larger risk of data loss. Install Windows 7 on one with your bios in AHCI sata mode and use the other for backup and data. If you do use an SSD, then put both drives on 3Gb/s sata ports and use them for programs, data, and backup. Use AHCI mode for your bios sata mode.
