RAID 0 & Drive letter question

By vgbaron

  1. Planning on a new build with storage as follows:

    1 - 320G SATA drive partitioned for XP + various apps

    2 - 320G SATA in RAID 0 for gaming

    1 - 500G SATA for b/u

    will be using a P5N32-E SLI 680i board and XP Pro.

    I am considering a larger #1 drive with a partition in case I decide to try Vista.

    I'm confused as to the physical procedure for setting this up. IF I install all the drives in the system and start to configure, will I run into drive letter issues while setting up the RAID? I'm thinking the 1st physical drive w/b C & D, the RAID 0 will be E and the b/u will be F.

    I've set up multiple drives before but not with a RAID array involved.

    Any help will be appreciated.
