How important is the cache of a HDD and how exactly does it affect it's performance?

I just purchased 2 WD Caviar Black 1TB to run in RAID 0 and noticed they have 64MB cache but never really understood how the size affected it's performance.

Thanks

i7 950 @ 4GHz w Noctua D-14 Cooler | Gigabyte UD3R Rev 2 Mobo | Kingston 6GB GDDR3 Tri Chan ValueRAM | 2x Gigabyte GTX 560 Ti OC | 2x WD Caviar Black Raid 0 | Antec Earthwatts 750w PSU | Antec DF-10 |
