Default NEED HELP raid 0 questions

Hello, I've been searching the internet for the answer but haven't quite found what I was asking. I have a OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD with my OS installed on it at the moment. I also have a Seagate 3 TB Backup/storage External desktop hard-drive. I am purchasing another OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD. I intend to put the 2 SSD's in Raid 0, but I need to know if I need to do a fresh install of windows or if i can "restore" my system from a backup after I format and combine my 2 SSD's in Raid 0.
Much thanks in advance

You have 2 options, fresh install, or try making an image of your current drive (using clone software like Acronis, or Ghost image) and then after making the array, partitioning, and formating put your OS image on that setup. My vote is for the latter.
