i have a pc im using as storage and htpc which is storing a few apps and some tv shows, now i can afford to lose whats on there as i back up most of what i want to keep to dvd and external 500gb usb drive.

Is there are difference between the two systems as they appear to do the same thing just in a different way
LVM will let you dynamically resize volumes on the fly. Raid 0 lets you increase a volume by the size of the disk you add. It also is the fastest way to loose all data if it dies, so don't keep vital data on it :)
