Today I think I'm going to bite the bullet and go RAID 0 on my sig rig. I currently have three drives and would be adding a fourth. Two would be in RAID 0 for the OS and the other two would be standalone drives for storage. With ICH10R, am I able to switch to RAID in the BIOS and still be able to use my standalone storage drives (currently AHCI) as is or is there going to be a fuss? Last time I played with RAID was on my old 680i and I seem to remember having to reformat all drives in the system.

Also, my P6T is v1 which means I have the onboard SAS controller. I believe I can still use regular SATA drives (only loosing the low-level format option) on this as well. Is there any advantage to going this route?

Alright guys thanks again for the words of wisdom. The Spinpoint is out and two brand-new WD 640 AAKS are in! So yes I now have 1TB+ for an OS drive but the 640's were a far better deal than the 320's when I picked them up.

The Vista installer picked up the array on the ICH10R without the driver disc and the secondary drives are doing just fine on their own as non-RAID discs. I'm getting the OS loaded up and then I'll post up a comparison.
