Need help choosing HDDs

so i was going to do a new build and i want to know what you guys think is better.

option 1: 1 7200RPM drive - for movies, music and such. and 1 10,000 RPM drive for OS and Games?

option 2: 2 7,200RPM drives in RAID 0 for everything?

or if anyone can suggest something even better

Option 1 is better for speed and data consistancy.

Alternatively, run a RAID 5 for all of it?

Well considering a 10k RPM drive is double the price of a normal SATA HDD, getting three normal SATA HDD's would be the same price.

Option 1, less future hassle and issues. Minimal real world speed differences.
