Three old hard drives in raid 0?

ebysamz

I have three old sata hard drives, one 160g seagate, one 80g seagate and a 80g western digital. The 160g drive is the only one that is relatively unused or new. Both the 80g drives have "caution" in crystal disk info. I am going to use my old windows 7 license on these. My question is, if I raid 0 them, will the strain or usage on each individual drive be reduced? I'm not going to be storing anything important but I want these drives to last as long as possible. So how can I use them in a way that the lifespan of the drives is the longest?

Raid 5 maybe? use the 160GB drive as a parody drive, when one of the 80GB drives fail replace it.
