I haven't had any trouble "YET"

ive been running 2x 36gig raptors in raid-0 for about 2 years now with no problems as of yet...

The safest and best performing array is a Raid10 (or Raid 1+0) Array. This will give you backup safety, and speed, but it requires 4 drives instead of just 2.
It actually depends on the sata raid card. Assuming the OP is intend to use the intergraded sata card such as ICH9R or NF570MCP, you probably see a maximum 50% increase in benchmark and average 10% increase in applications.

Yes, the chance of error doubles in a RAID 0 setup. But I think it can be safely neglected in home computer. Honestly, the chance of a hard drive failure is a million to one. When you are running in a RAID 0, the chance become a million to two. The problem is it can be very difficult for the data recovery work when this happen (RAID 0).

If I were setting up a 2 x 250GB raid 0 array, I would install a single 500 GB drive in addition to the raid drives and setup a program like Nero to do scheduled backups of the array. This way you can restore everything in the unlikely event a drive does fail.
As far as failure goes, a raid 0 array with 2 drives does double your chances of data loss, but as others have stated, drive failures are rare. I've had 3 drives die in my computers, one was a 5.25" drive that was 8 years old, and I've had a seagate that was doa, and a western digital that failed during formatting. It seems to me that, in my case, if a drive survives formatting it tends to last.
