Giga GA-X58A-UD3R SDD and RAID Array Setup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Good mornin folks...

Im currently pricing out and setting up a build that I want to come in around 1500 bucks when completed.. I have decided that for a storage solution I would like to try my hand at two things which im not at all experienced with, an SSD and a Raid Array.

GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R
i7-950

I would like to run an SSD for Windows 7 and apps, plus a 2 TB RAID 0 array for storage. (I will have external backup)

The question is, what is the best way to set this up on this specific motherboard? Put the SSD on SATAIII and run the RAID off of SATAII?

I have seen online that this board can be picky with the way an SSD is setup, so I want to make sure this configuration will work before I buy the wrong hardware.

Thanks for any help!
