im not sure, the 150gb is prolly a better idea, just dont get the X version. its only really useful if you have an acryllic case or plan on building a hdd mount on your case window, otherwise you wont really see the drive move

which is a good reason to use RAID 0. faster performance and if it is only gaming then data loss shouldn't be a problem on the off-chance one of the raptors fails
