i'd go with d first option. coz if u combine 2 for use in sata raid 0, n if 1 fails, d other 1 is gone. with the first option, u can use the raptor for important things such as system files and games. in that way, ur games and d OS will load much faster. u can use the other 160GB drive for other things that does not require higher speeds.
