Default Raid?

so now i got an extra HDD, but its a Laptop Sata HDD.
i was thinking of setting up RAID0 wit my desktop Sata HDD.
they both are different sizes and company (Laptop-WD, Desktop-Seagate).
from what i heard, the WD will be lowered to 120gb since the seagate is 120gb.
will it actually work if i use those 2?
and is it worth it to setup raid0?
how much performance gain do i get? (playing games, multitasking)
or should i just use it as an external for more space?
thanks in advance

Desktop -Cooler Master NV690/AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE/MSI 880G-E45 Motherboard/2 x 2GB DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws X/Sapphire HD 5870 1GB GDDR5/CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX/Seagate 7200.12 500GB (OS), Samsung F3 1TB (Storage)/Sony DVD Burner/Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
