Use your 120gb SSD for your boot drive, and go with RAID 0 for the momentus XT and the Caviar Black drives. If you are storing a lot of important data on the Caviar Blacks, you could go Raid 1.

Yes, overclock your CPU! It'll help a bit for CPU dependent games like WoW or SC2.

RAID 0 is awesome, but not on your data drives. Keep them separate.
