[linux-lvm] partition strategy

This is my first post, so please bear with me.

I have 2 free disk areas 230G and 231G. I hoping to take advantage of 

Is it better to create 3 partitions 2 x230G + 1G - create a striped LV 
over the first 2, then add the third to the volume group, then extend 
the LV over to the new 1G extension (since LVM2 allows extending striped 
lv-s). And if so, does the non-striped area get used as a last resort 
(after the striped area is completely full)?


Is it better to create 2 paritions 230G and 231G, put both in a vg, 
create a striped lv and lvm will take care of striping to the 230G mark, 
then writing linearly afterwards.

TIA for any advice.
