It will work, however the 7200.10 is considerably slower than the 7200.11 due to the platters being smaller. Personally I think I'd rather not use the drives in RAID0.

They will work fine in RAID together. I used 4 maxtors in raid 0. Performance wise I would save and get a raptor. From personal experience the 4 disk raid was no comparison to the raptors. Even 7 disks(7k) could not beat the two disk raptor raid.
