Neither of these (SSDs or RAID0) are going to give you "faster game speeds" if by "faster game speeds" you mean higher frame rates. You're only going to see an decrease in load times, i.e. loading new levels will happen quicker and loading the game up will happen quicker.
My advice: Buy an SSD, and a single large storage drive (like a Spinpoint F3). If you're going to dump 1-200 dollars into 2 hard drives, you may as well just add that to your SSD money and buy a larger SSD.
A 120gb SSD is quite large. You'll be able to fit Windows + necessary apps and 4-8 games on there no problem (depending on the size of the games in question.)Edited by pursuinginsanity - 6/3/11 at 6:43pm
