you don't lose any space in RAID 0, RAID 0 is striping the data across the drives only, ther eis no backup, so no "lost" space.
As to whether it's worth it, the RAID setup in the P5B Deluxe was pretty easy, and it was my first time to, and it was definatly worth it for me when I went and looked at my D drive properties and saw 835GB of space available (only 3 drives at the time and a 50GB partition for Windows seperate).
When I install the 4th drive this weekend and see over 1TB of storage space....it will be totally worth it.
