Will raiding this drive and this drive give me 360GB? I average around 15GB so more memory would be helpful. Thanks!

Creating a RAID-0 array does not increase memory. It will increase the Read/Write performance.

A RAID-0 array's capacity is based upon the drive in the array with the smallest size.
So if your RAID-0 a 120GB drive and a 240GB drive your array's total capacity (before formatting) will be 240GB (120 x 2).

So if you RAID-0 those 2 drives you will be wasting 120GB of storage.

You do not use RAID at all. You connect both drives in AHCI mode.
Whatever drive you install your O/S on will be your C: drive and the other will be your D: drive.

You want JBOD mode. This will make both disks work as one large disk but there will be no performance increase over their normal speed. You could also do this thru windows disk management.
