Default 120GB SSD vs 2X 60GB SSD via RAID 0

I'm looking at upgrading my HDD as it's preventing everything else from running as well as it could. I'm also wondering, since my motherboard is SATA 2, if I'd be able to achieve SATA 3 like speeds using 2 60GB SSDs via RAID 0.

I'm planning on having my OS (Windows 7) as well as my common programs and about 3 or so good size games on the SSD setup. The rest of my files will be put on an external HDD.
