    I'm curently running on a single Seagate 1TB HDD. There was a good deal on picking up another one, so I thought about putting the two into Raid 0. Would I notice a large performance bump?

    I assume I'll have to do a full reformat, but are there other disadvatages?

    Thanks

    Just sheer performance. Try to see if your board can do RAID 0 + 1. I heard this allows the performance of RAID 0 but the redundancy of RAID 1. However, you should double check on that in case I'm totally wrong.

    Raid 0 has a very very good scaling. If one hard drive fails though, you lost all your data. Raid 1 will provide standard or slightly improved read speeds depending on the raid controller and the application accessing the array but noticeably slower write speeds. If your 1tb hard drives are storing crucial data, then I recommend raid 1.
