The ssd will read and write faster than any hdd raid array. So yes, your boot and read times will speed up. Generally people use the ssd for the OS and programs you use a lot, and the hdds for storage.

Yes, you can put the 2 hdds in raid, and the ssd separate.

Edit: They can even all be on the same controller. When you set up your array, you pick which drives become part of the raid.

Well what you are planning on doing is perfectly fine. But realize that when you set your secondary drives into raid, you will lose TRIM on your primary SSD. Depending on what kind of SSD you get, it will have some sort of garbage collection which would solve the TRIM issue.
If you want to just flat out have speed, go for it.
But personally I never felt a need to have my secondary hard-drives aka. storage drives in raid because they are already fast enough for my liking.

Maybe he's got a multi-controller mb, if he's lucky? I'd tend to agree on not raiding the data drives, got all the speed you need on the ssd.

Yes your two drives will be converted into one drive that is 2tb and has more speed while sacrificing increased risk in loosing all your data because if one drive fails, the entire raid will crash. But I never have had this happen.
