That is a good idea as is simplifies future release upgrades.

The swap space recommendation was in the past 2 times as much as
available RAM. Nowadays with so much RAM like 1GB it is ok to use much
less swap, 500MB up to 1GB should be ok.

RAID0 means that if 1 disk fails all data is lost, no way to recover
lost data. Use RAID1 which means mirroring 2 partitions at the cost of
the storage space of 1 partition (2 partitions of 100GB in RAID1 setup
are 100GB available space on the array). RAID5 costs less space but
requires at least 3 disk drives.
