    Honestly i dont know much about this raid stuff...Sata drives are easy, well at least at my job they are. The only problem i have is connecting the PSU sata cable into the HDD. Other than that I think its easy.

    when you boot up from a win XP cd it will ask you if you want to install any RAID drivers

    Hmm

    For the last year, year and a half maybe longer, all the single (non-raid) sata drives that I have set up on machines have been detected via XP with no driver install needed. Not saying all, but most motherboards now do not need the sata driver to detect a sata drive. Raid is another thing

    That was me that recommended that. And I can say that CPU, Memory and Motherboard are very good for the price. Those parts should do wonders.
