For RAID 10 you need a minimum of 4 drives. Your Samsungs will be fine. Go into the RAID BIOS and create a new array with RAID level 10. Nominate all of your Samsungs to be members of the array, and hit "go".

Your motherboard, being Intel based, will have an ICH10R, which is a pretty good controller. However, its RAID 5 implementation sucks. Utterly. Don't bother with it. The write speeds are abysmal. Go with RAID 10.

RAID0 = striped (for performance)
RAID1 = mirrored (for redundancy)
RAID5 = striped with distributed parity
RAID1+0 (or RAID0+1) = striped mirrored sets (or mirrored striped sets depending on the top array)
At long last...
