Default Re: 3TB boot partition possible?

I think I made a final decision

About to buy 2x VelociRaptor 300GB, stripe them (RAID-0), install OS and all programs onto this boot partition (600GB is more than enough for all apps I have), and backup it regularly onto 3TB (4x1TB) RAID-5, single GPT volume. Data, music, videos, databases, VMware images, backups, etc., will stay there.

2x VelociRaptor 300GB is about the same price as 1x OCZ Vertex Turbo 120GB, but I cannot fit all programs I need on 120GB SSD.

What do you think?
Q9550@3.4 + Asus P5Q Premium + 16GB RAM + 2xVelociraptor 300GB + 4xWD Black 1TB RAID-5 on Adaptec 5805 + PoV GTX580 + Dell 3008WFP + Windows 7 x64
