LVM lets you combine physical volumes so you get the same effect as RAID0.

LVM gives you the space benefits but not the speed benefits of using RAID 0 since it doesn't "stripe" the data across disks. (Assuming that most of your writes occur to the same partition, /home say) LVM additionally would let you extend your space by adding disks, something that couldn't be done with RAID 0, not without destroying the existing setup.
