Re: first build help
Your motherboard comes with a single SATA cable. If you want RAID, you'll need another one. You have one floppy and one IDE cable already so you'll also need an extra IDE for your DVD ROM. Use the other one for the DVD+RW. I would get these and he mounting screws for some of your drives at a local computer shop. They're cheap.
RAID 0, I have never set one up before. I plan on doing that as well next month sometime when I get my new system built. Your motherboard supports RAID 0 so that's good. I guess you just plug in the two SATA drives, put the Windows XP CD and start installation. Press F6 during the process to load software for RAID from a disk it comes with. Once, that's installed, you have to configure your drives in Windows Computer management. That's where it gets tricky. Hope someone will respond about RAID0.
