What I am considering doing is setting up a RAID 0 array to load games faster, especally Doom 3. Has anyone elce tried this? Are the resuilts worth it?

Last week since you ask, although not with the express purpose of gaming. It's not difficult to do and the speed increase is okay, but, well it's not something you do for kicks and giggles. If you know what you're doing however then I say go for it.

I use two massive IDE drives with a program that backs up everything whenever I leave it on overnight (when I'm downloading or uploading massive mods for example), that does for me. If I was to use RAID, I'd go for RAID 5, which both mirrors and stripes data. It also automatically replaces corrupt data without you having to do anything.
