Actualy thats incorrect. you Can RAID 0 with Differen't Sized Harddrives.

To Qoute WIkIpedia
"A RAID 0 (also known as a striped set) splits data evenly across two or more disks with no parity information for redundancy. It is important to note that RAID 0 was not one of the original RAID levels, and is not redundant. RAID 0 is normally used to increase performance, although it can also be used as a way to create a small number of large virtual disks out of a large number of small physical ones. A RAID 0 can be created with disks of differing sizes, but the storage space added to the array by each disk is limited to the size of the smallest diskĀ—for example, if a 120 GB disk is striped together with a 100 GB disk, the size of the array will be 200 GB. "

However The Speeds Must be the same, So that part is right.
