Would it be better to buy two 7200 RPM SATA hard drives and make a RAID out of them or just buy one 10,000 RPM SATA hard drive?

Thanks for any advice!

Your performace might be a little better with the RAID0 array, you'll get more size, but you'll be more likely to lose your data.

I went with one 74 GB raptor and one 7200 rpm drive for data. Works good.

Huh? You're saying that having a RAID would make it more likely that I'd lose my data? Please elaborate.

If you run RAID 0 then yeah. All it takes is for one drive to fail and you lose the data on both drives.
