Default Wanna go raid 0 - 8mb or 16mb cache?

I was looking into raid 0 with two Western digital 250gig sata 3.0 with the 16mb cache. It's only got a 4 star rating with 130 reviews.

So should I go with dual 80gb WD 8mb cache drives? How bad will the less cache hurt performance?

Thanks

Reviews don't mean anything really, just a bunch of retards who presume to know what they're doing are given a voice to try and critique items that aren't to their perfection.

Get the WD 320gb SE16, those are fast/ncie/quiet/cool hd's.
