Default RAID 0 + Muiltiple Drives

I read over at another forum that there was a rumour going around that if you install 4 Hard drives in a Raid 0 array that your speeds SHOULD be at around 400MB/s. He did not mention if it was using a onboard controller or a RAID card but would there be any truth to this? I have always boycotted RAID as I do not believe that they do anything but use more power and waste space for minimal performance gains.

If this is true then I MIGHT go with 4 x 640GB WD Blacks for my new I7 build....but I will not shell out for a raid card....onboard raid controller on a EVGA X58 only.

Can anyone shed some light on this please?

Thank You for your time.
