If you are you concearned about speed then raid 0 stripped array. If one drive fails all your data is gone ( 10,000 rpm raptors 2 x 74gb = 148gb stripped drive). If you are concearned about data then raid 1 mirrored. If one drive fails data is safe (get bigger drives 2 x 250gb = 250gb mirrored drive).
