Plus, with a data RAID-0 array, one can just format in Windows which makes the process much easier. Either way, it doesn't make any sense at all to only have Windows on the array.
True

That's why I'd recomment just to dump everything on the Array. I had never any problems with Windows on a RAID array (of course in a separate partition). If you had problems with Windows being 'delicate', there must have been something about your RAID array that wasn't too great (maybe a failing disk?)

For intel southbridges, if you hit CTRL+I during boot-up, it gives you all the drives and possible RAID arrays with them. I am wondering how this will work with the nvidia southbridge.
What performance sacrifice?

That's read performance only.

Plus, not all controllers perform well with RAID1.

What can I use to test write performance without removing all my array's contents?
