What should I get?

2x WD VELOCIRAPTOR 10k rpm or 1x Intel X25M
I can only afford 1 piece or 1 set for raid 0.

In terms of performance SSD win over a lot or can't tell at all?
Stable or not is not an issue as it's for downloaded movies & songs only

If it's only for data like you mentioned I would just get a 1TB WD Caviar Black or Samsung Spinpoint F3.

For Data, the F3s are what to get.

An SSD is best as an OS/programs drive.

if its for media then you dont need an ssd fo that. also dont want raid 0 since if a drive fails then your data is lost. get a couple of 2 tb drives instead - use for one backup.

Performance, SSD hands down.
Theres things SSDs offer that HDDs could never achieve, 0.1ms response times for example and burst speeds. The X25-Ms have burst speeds that exceed 2500mb/s vs 335 from a 600GB VelociRaptor.

Most people use an SSD for the OS and commonly used programs and a mechanical HD for the media. An SSD really wont have enough room for your media. Instead of a the VRs take a look at the WD 640 blacks - in raid 0 they have equal or slightly better read/writes. The VRs have slightly better access times but cannot compare tot he 0.1 ms time of an SSD.
