Default HDD Upgrade?

Almost finished upgrading my pc once again, and now the question is should i go ahead and upgrade my hdd's too?

Currently i have a
Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 7200 80 Gig ATA-133 as my master
Maxtor DiamondMax 40 I believe 5400 40 Gig ATA-66 as my slave

My current system will be
ASUS P5AD2 Premium
P4 560J 3.6 Ghz
1024 Mb 533Mhz DDR2 Dual-Channel

Should I go ahead and spend another 150-200 bucks and buy a couple new 120Gb or so SATA HDD's

If i should, would a Raid 0 be a good bet?

Finally does anyone know if you can have ATA drives and SATA drives installed at the same time?

Help is appreciated.

I think they will work together OK.

This may be a stupid question, but the board does support SATA, doesn't it?
