What are some possible uses for an SSD RAID setup?

I'm looking at a laptop that happens to have two mSATA ports, and I'm thinking of putting these two 240GB drive's in RAID 0 with how stupid cheap they are:

But in looking for a hard drive for storage, I found this:

So now I'm considering OS+storage on the latter WD drive, and a RAID 0 SSD setup...for...what? >.> I'll be getting into video editing, and I've heard a SSD RAID 0 setup could help speed things up - how true is that?


EDIT: I'm also seeing mention of using one SSD exclusively for cache/database files within Adobe suite programs - is that I good idea? Now I'm thinking 120GB boot/game drive, 240GB mSATA for current/editing files, 240GB mSATA for cache/database, and 1TB for storage.

I run two SSDs in RAID0 and it doesn't help my bootup time that I've noticed from when I was only doing one.

What it has helped me in that I've noticed is
-Loading League of Legends (still doesn't help that I have to wait for everyone else).
-Loading Diablo 3.

And that's about it, really. Everything else that I do I don't notice a speed increase at all but then again, I was never really benchmarking anything and these are just how I feel about it.
