Default 2xWD Caviar Black 640 GB or 1x WD Caviar Black 1T

I was Inline for 2x WD Caviar Black 640GB from NCIX's sale but well it seems I won't be getting these anytime soon, could someone recommend a comparable sized and speed drives that I could run in raid 0. I was looking at the 1 gig WD caviar black but I don't need a 2t raid array and would prefer not to go to a single 1t drive.

The 1TB Black isn't any faster than the 640GB. So the 2 640's would be the way to go.

+1.

Don't forget to back up often with a Raid 0, just in case.
