I agree with bigo93bronco, RAID 0 means that the computer splits up the amount of information it has to write into how many hard drives are in RAID 0. In this case, the computer would split up the info into 4 equal parts and wire them onto the sepeartae hard rives at the same (which saves space and time).
Unfortunately, in RAID 0, if one hard drive fails you lose all data. It's only in RAID 1 where the computer mirrors the information from hard drive to the other at the same time. This way, if one fails, you have an exact copy of the same hard drive.

You kinda just cancelled out what you were arguing about! You get the smallest hard drive in terms of capacity, and multiply it by the amount of hard drives and you have a total capacity. In this case:
4 hard drives, all at 74Gb in capacity which means:
4 x 74 = 296Gb
That is one hell of an expensive set up, and if you can afford it, why not go for it?? I would if I had the money! I mean nearly 300Gb running at 10,000rpm! Wow
