Default 2 HDDs or 2 RAID 0 HDDs?

should I order 2 400GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) or should I order 800GB RAID 0 (2 x 400GB SATA HDDs) ?

I don't know which one is better.Do RAID 0 HHDs require anything to properly function?

I would get the raid 0 because of the performance... but are you really going to need that much space??? You motherboard must have raid 0 capibility or you can get a pci card for that....

It's not a race, unless it is a race.

they are the same...there are no RAID HDDs...you can use almost every HDD in RAID as long as its supported by your motherboard
