I don't think its set up properly and i'm not sure how to set it up...thank you so much for pointing this out man..can you please help me with this?

All my stuff is on a C:...meaning I made only 1 partition.
Raid you need 2 HDDs of the same size to run it.
And it made a difference on several things when playing CSS.

"ItsLasher" - More particularly, in the back of my p5ad2-deluxe motherboard it says "Raid Configurations". Here's what it says in detail:
The motherboard comes with the Silicon Image Sil3114, ITE 8212, and the INtel ICH6R Southbride RAID controllers that allow you to configure IDE and Serial ATA hard disk drives as RAID sets. The motherboard supports the following RAID configurations....
RAID 0 (Data Striping), Raid 1 (Data mirroring), RAID 0 + 1, RAID 5, RAID 10, JBOD, Intel Matrix Storage

So what you are saying is that I have to reformat once again and create two equally partitioned drives? I'm on a 160 gb comp so it should be 80/80? Exactly the same...more info!

You must have 2 sepporate HDDs to run RAID you can't just partition a 160 to get it.

IF you have 2 80 gig HDDs then you can set up RAID OR if you have 1 160Gig then you need to buy another 160Gig.

Thank you Phoenix_Master.
1-We'll the only symptoms would be a slower then average card or one that doesn't work.
2-You can check them with a tool but I don't know what it's called best way is to google your power supply (brand/model) and see the specs, or check the manual that came with it, if it's a non-brand look on its side for a list of specs.
3-I don't know of software that reports watts/amp and power supply specs but there are programs that do full system diagnostics, maybe they can report such info.

no problem
