Where RAID-0 is particularly useful is when used with conventional hard drives, since they are relatively slow compared to an SSD.  RAID-0 will give you approximately twice the sustained transfer rate of a single HD, since the controller is continually "toggling" back and forth between the two drives.  It can also slightly improve the latency as well.  Since SSD's are so fast (approaching the burst rate of the controller), doubling the speed of the SSD's (RAID-0) doesn't get you much performance improvement because the communication interface is saturated.

Cool, i will keep that in mind.

So my best way to go is to have a large size SSD + HDD, i was thinking about something like 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD 7200 as a start, then later i can add more either SSD or HDD when necessary.
