Default Help me decide on this motherboard, please!

This is the info founded at: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813135196

My questions if anyone here knows much about motherboard are that:

1. What type of chipset is: North Bridge ATI RS400
South Bridge ATi SB400 ???

2. What is AGP Express different/more advantage over other AGP type??

3. Help me know what SATA RAID RAID 0/1 is.

I look forward to all your insights.

Default Um well...

Well the whole board is ATI. My take on that is ATI just jumped in the chip set/ mother board fray and has not been at it very long.
You might want to shop around for another name brand board from one of the major players. MSI, ASUS, GIGABYTE and so on. You get what you pay for so shop carefully.
Now agp express is faster than regular agp but the cards reflect this in their prices. SATA raid makes a mirror copy of what you put on the system. But the drives cost more and even though it says 150MB transfer rate that is absolute max speed and doesn't go that fast all the time. SATA drives to me are a waste of money. You can slap in a ata133 pci card if you need to go past one cd and three hard drives. Cheaper too.
Others will have varing opinions about things. This is just mine...
