Default Does SATA III in RAID 0 (on non-SSD) out performing SATA II in RAID 0 (on non-SSD)?

I am looking to build a new gaming rig, and sadly SSD and Velociraptor drives are out of my price range. So I am looking to get either two WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb drives or two WD Caviar Black WD1501FASS 1.5TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb and place them into a RAID 0 array.

I just don't know what will give me the best performance when using RAID 0, SATA III or SATA II. From what read, there really isn't much difference between SATA II and III on non-SSD when using single drive, unfortunately I haven't found any information about placing them in a RAID 0 array.
