NVMe RAID 0

Simple question. At the m.2 NVMe level, is going for a RAID 0 configuration worth it? Going to be used with a Ryzen 7 1700x so I'm pretty sure it doesn't even have enough PCIe lanes but even if some can be cut for other things, the price for a motherboard that can support this is also astronomical... right?

Is this for gaming?

Because you shouldn't waste money on NVME in that case.

I tried it when they released the BIOS and drivers for TR just because.

As expected, it did not noticeably boost performance in anything at all (for my use cases).

If you have the money to spring for identical m.2 drives, don't.  Use the money that will be to your advantage like increasing your total ram amount, better GPU, better monitor, better mouse, etc.  There is no real advantage to NVME m.2 in raid zero, now if you set them up in raid one, that would be an advantage.

Thanks for the replies. I agree, it's way too expensive for very little, if any, performance gain for 99.999% of users.
