They tested a quad-array of Raptors and got a sustained transfer rate of over 300MB/s!

Yes, the Raptor is a very nice drive to have, however you really do NOT need to do a RAID-0 setup.

http://www.overclock.net/hard-drives...snt-worth.html

Just get one Raptor, either the 74GB or the 150GB version. If you have the money then get the 150GB version. It performs better than the 74GB version, but both are definitely better than 7200RPM drives.

Where did you get that info? SATAII is the fastest available consumer grade interface for hard drives and it's max limit is 300 MB/s. SATA-150 is 150 Mb/s and SATAII is 300 MB/s. All Raptors are SATA-150.
