Math.....some peeps dont get it.

I have used RAID0 for OS's plenty of times, short-stroked and fully partioned, have yet to have a drive die while in RAID. That said I have had plenty of drives up and die just lucky to never had them in a RAID at the time. But I also format about every 3 months.
Since you already have the green drives I would either buy a black for a OS or use one of the greens for now and put the cash you have for a Black away and save for a SSD.
