If you just want a desktop machine that boots up fast and is snappy you dont need to Raid0 SSD's. Its not going to make your games any quicker and youre likely not going to feel the nanosecond of extra speed it could possibly bring you when opening up your web browser or email client.
What you will do with Raid 0 is spend more money on two drives, run the extra added risk of complications and failure, added latency and on most motherboards a slower bootup time due to onboard raid initialising.
Its your choice
haha you seem very anti raid. I have been running raid 0 for years and never had any problems and just to be safe I back all my data up on another hdd. As for price it was about $40 cheaper to get 2x 64gb Samsung 830 SSDs than a single 128gb Samsung 830 ssd. Plus I bought them about a month and a half apart. Second deal was so good I couldnt pass it up.
