Reviewing my drawing, I don't clearly explain what I want. Here's another try:

Link 2 13gb drives for a total of 26gb, times 2.
Then link both assemblies in Raid 0 for performance.

That would be basically twice Raid 0, using 4 drives. Feasible?

Whit an external drive as back up....and if you could have all 4 in RAID 0..

I did try in the past, the RAID 5 and RAID 1+0 and this is what I got now:

4 disks in RAID 0 + 1 drive back up

You could have an external disk for back up. I use Acronis to back up the complete disk (incremental) every day...take 1 minute.

I did have a virus one day and I restore the complete OS disk in one hour like is was the day before.

Sandra benchmark my RAID 0 at 240 MB/s and 6 ms random access time...
