I currently have a crucial mx100 512gb ssd and today I will be receiving a ocz vertex 450 512gb ssd . I am thinking about putting them in raid 0 configuration that way my computer will recognize them as a single 1012gb ssd . if I do this I know the chance of data loss will increase . but will putting 2 ssd's in a raid 0 configuration also shorten the life span of my solid state drives ? and say if one of the solid state drives dies and no longer works because of a physical issue does this mean both solid state drives will no longer work ?

It shouldn't really shorten the lifespan.

If one drive dies, the stripe will cease to function, but the other drive won't automatically die as well.

you are gonna put 2 different SSD's together and try to raid 0 them together..... Thats a No No! Even though there both the same size (in terms of capacity) you really should only pair identical drives together.

No, drive life isn't shortened by putting them in a raid. Your data may be twice as likely to be lost though.

With SSDs, I don't even see the point of raiding them. The performance gains will be minimal to an end user unless you're measurebating...

Make sure your mobo supports trim for the ssds.
Nvm Z97... pretty sure it does.
