Default Getting a second intel x25-m

I am finding myself in need of more storage on my primary drive, so I am considering picking up a second intel x25-m 80gb drive. That said, does anybody know what kind of performance I might see if I put the two in a raid 0 setup? Or is it not worth the hassle of reformatting everything?

You loose TRIM in Raid 0.

Yeah thats another downside I'm looking at, plus I don't know how to maintain write speeds without it.

I need to know if anybody has any experience running these in raid 0 vs what speeds you get without raid 0.
