Seagate (7200 rpm; 64Mb Cache): Max: 206.9 Mb/s ; Min: 72.6 Mb/s ; Average: 156.3 Mb/s, Accss time 12 ms

Right now I am running the 2 tb as OS, games and other stuff, and the green only for storage.

I guess that if i raid 0 these 2 I will get less performance than with the single 2 tb one. Am i right?

Again, RAID0 boost sequential performance.... random performance is virtually unchanged. When you are using your computer, something like 90% of the disk access is random.
Once again...
