QuestionOne server hdd vs two normal hdd connected into RAID Pin

Hi guys!

I'm concerning situation, what will do the job quicker. One server hdd, for example WD VelociRaptor, 3.5'', 300GB, Serial ATA/300, 10000RPM, 16MB cache, or two WD Caviar Black, 3.5'', 1TB, SATA/600, 7200RPM, 64MB cache connected into RAID 0.
For me, intuitively raid will be quicker, but some test or personal experience will be useful. Unfortunately I never worked with raid so I only know the theory about it.
I know that there is double chance to data loss with raid 0 but I'm planning to buy third external hdd which will be working as a backup storage.
I don't wan't to create raid 1+0 because of lack of founds to buy more hdd's.
In the price of one 300GB server disk I can get two 1 TB disks.

What are you thinking about such situation? The computer will work as a render machine, mostly for 3ds max and autocad as well, so the speed of disk is quite important matter for me.
Oh! And I'm planning to use raid controller to relieve processor from counting all that stripe stuff.
