1 raptor for os and put program files/users on the other two raptors in raid 0

there's a bunch of combinations and I'm not sure what to do. any ideas for the best performance?
I use this config if I were you, put two raptors on raid0, here goes system and programs, use other raptor to page file (I have 4 gigs and a pagefile of 4 Gigs exactly) and user files.
