RAID0 in PowerMac G5 - worth it?

I am going to do a clean install of Leopard on my G5 and I am thinking about merging my two 320GB drives into single RAID0. I am very well aware of technical pros and cons of this solution, I do TimeMachine backups, Flickr backups, Dropbox backups, so potential RAID0 crash will not affect my data.

But I want to hear some personal experiences about performance. Many people say that speed increase is only marginal, but from pure theoretical view, it should be twice as fast as a single drive configuration. So, did you ever use software RAID0 on two drives connected to internal SATA controler? And how was it?
