Maybe drop from 7 sec load times to 5... Mostly stuff that you'll see on benchmarks for SSD's and loading massive scenes in games like Skyrim, like .2 sec instead of .4 or something like that. I say go for a larger single SSD myself.
Double the drives = double the possible failure rate, and double the hassle when changing out components that involve a failure or change in motherboard. Just makes it difficult. Not that it's not awesomely fast, I've run raid drives in the past, but for me the SSD's are fast enough. Paying for a good quality Samsung PRO or the like is more advantageous than having 2 SSD's in raid.
