comment What is the rationale behind disabling Superfetch on SSD systems?
As an aside for those new to using an SSD with Windows, it is also highly recommended that you disable Disk Defragmenter for the same reasons cited below. A new installation of Windows 7 on an SSD should have Defrag disabled when you install, but upgrading from a standard disk to an SSD will require that it be disabled manually as well.

comment Creating one big continuous space from 4 disks
Indeed, RAID 5 would be a lot safer, and I covered the dangers of RAID 0 as well. In my experience when I explain to people who want to span disks for non-server purposes they don't want to lose the space that RAID 5 requires for parity, hence the RAID 0 suggestion. Personally, I wouldn't touch 0 with a 20 foot pole unless I was using it for temporary work space.
