you dont need identical drives it will just split it to the smallest and slowest.

ex. if you have a 50 and a 70 you get 100 when together in raid 0.

as far as your other comment. Raid 0 is Stripe Set, never heard it called speed raid but it could be. i know when in raid PROFORMANCE is increased, not read/write times. read/write stay the same but because data is half the size it gets done quicker.

As far as throwing together 2 320 gigs, maybe im just to "old school" for you guys lol, even tho im not that old actually i just take more of an old school approach to things lol.

Why not Just wikipedia RAID, it probably tells you more than you wanted to know but at least you KNOW it for future reference.
