Do it!...

With the Samsung Spinpoint drives so cheap and reliable right now, you could do this on the cheap (well, I consider it 'on the cheap' when you can have 2TB of data in raid 10 for less than 300~ if you shop around!)

Right now I've got a SSD split into an OS partition and games partition, a 2x 500GB seagates in a RAID 0 array and 2x 2TB WDs in a mirrored array. Overkill? Yes, but that's what we're all about here.

For most situations these days, a single SSD for the OS and some apps and a large drive for data is better than messing with RAIDs unless absolutely needed for some specific reason.

No. Don't do it.

For less than $250 you can have a 64GB C300 AND a 2TB F4 - which will be MUCH faster in day to day usage.

This. There really is little benefit in RAIDing SSDs, especially now the latest-gen drives can hit 500+MB/s on their own.
