RAID0 Stripe size

im using the 3ware 8506-4LP with 4 WD 250 GB Caviar Drives(7200rpm).. What would be the ideal stripe size for :

-reiser 4

does the file system make a difference? whats the best stripe fo rlinux in general..everyday desktop use..

my options are from 64k all the way upto 1MB

ive read that 64k is ideal for windows..

with the 4-way raid, im getting 100MB/s in HDTach with a stripe size of 512KB (which seems a little low)

my current plan is to use 2 of the drives with a stripe size of 64k with windows and the other two with linux.. im a general desktop user, bit of divx encoding and lots of compiling. Im using the AMD FX-55 with 2GB of RAM

so what would be the ideal linux stripe size?
