  1. Hey all,
    I currently have 2x120gb segate sata 7200. on a p4p800 se. these drives are just standard i.e not raid 0 or anything
    This only has two Sata "plugs" on the mobo.

    Im looking to get another HDD say 200gig
    My question is : Can i get a sata card and chuck my new one on there and run it as a "standard" drive, AND configure my two existing drives as Raid 0?

    Cheers! :slurp: :slurp: :slurp:

    If your existing SATA controller supports RAID then yes. You can also buy the extra SATA controller with RAID and create your array on that.
