Default RAID Suggestions

My current PC Setup is 2x WD 500GB hardrives in RAID0 and 1x WD 1TB Drive on it's own. I'll be reinstalling windows soon and was wondering would i get similar performance if i put my 3x drives into RAID10 (But with the added benefit of data redundancy)?

Desktop:BitFenix Survivor~Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3R~ i7 2600K @ 4hz~AMD 6870 1GB~12gb Team Elite DDR3 1333~3xWD In RAID5~W7 Ult
Laptop:Alienware M11x~ i7-2637M 1.7GHz~16GB 1333MHz DDR3~GeForce GT 540M~W7 Ult

Default Re: RAID Suggestions

you might see a slight improvement, I would suggest selling one of your drives and buy a 64gb solid state drive and install the OS on there and your programs on your other drives. You will see a huge speed improvement with a SSD drive
