I'm getting a computer and I was just wondering if a 10 000 rpm hard drive is faster than 2 7200 hard drives in RAID 0.

Yes it is. And 2x 10 000 in raid are even faster.

But I wouldnt bother if you're going to use RAID 0.

Could you explain it further for me please why would RAID0 be slower?

Thanks
