( I saw most of 80GB are cost less than $60, so I was wondering which setup will be better for me)
If Fast = Sustained Transfer Rate, then RAID-0 will probably be better.
If Quick = Access Time, then raptor 10,000 rpm will probably be better.
In the real world, a majority of the time, RAID-0 actually performs worse than operating the two drives independently. There is qualification to this statement, so search for the test results that Anandtech published.
