How much of a speed difference is there when striping 2 drives compared to using just a single drive ?

RAID 0: This level spreads--or stripes--data across two or more drives, which speeds data transfers. If you frequently move lots of data on and off drives, you'll notice a performance boost from a RAID 0 array; but if you mainly do standard PC tasks, you won't realize much speed gain. Backing up is critical, since RAID 0 doubles your chances of losing your data: If one drive fails, you lose the data on both drives.
