    SATA technology makes your data flow rate faster, but when it comes about Hard drive to ram Tx it`s make no more diffrence.
    So for games 120*7200 is better option as far as i know.

    Yes, if u configure ur SATA drives in RAID 0, u'll definitely get a speed boost. Check if ur mobo has onboard RAID controller and get ur technician to configure them for u.

    The latest SATA drives run at 10k. If u can get one, the performance increase will be quite significant. As for RAID 0, u get perf increment of around 5% to 15% (real time, not just benchmarking). But your data cannot be recovered in case of a HDD crash. U should have a spare HDD as backup in case u go for RAID 0. The increment in gaming performances won't be much unless u use quite alot of virtual memory. Of course, loading/ saving will be faster.
