    My family just chipped in together to get me a ssd for my birthday. So I got an OCZ Vertex LE 50gb.

    I also currently have 3x 300gb velociraptors and a 1tb wd black.
    Im trying to figure out how I should do my steam/game drive.

    SSD for OS drive
    3 x 300gb Velociraptor in raid 5 stroked to 200gb for steam/games? or all 3 in raid 0 stroked to 200gb?
    1tb black for misc storage

    I would do the RAID 5.

    right on, thanks. Raid 5 is still fast just not as fast as raid 0 right?

    It's safer. Raid 0 technically isn't raid.
