My System Specs

Default

The vertex is a bit faster than the agility. Same controller, different NAND flash.
2 agilities in raid 0 will be faster than a single vertex though, but you of course exponentially increase your chance of data loss. (Raid controller, or one of the drives could error/fail/etc)

If you have to buy local, I'd probably buy a single vertex if I was you. If you can wait a bit for shipping, perhaps an Intel X-25M 160GB. (mucho random writes)
Or even wait a while to see how well the shipping versions of drives with Sandforce controllers will do. (early pre-production samples look sexy)
