Hi, I've been using my two Seagates in RAID-0 and my question is what if I mixed up the sata connections. What I mean is, I had my computer running and I just took it apart to do some upgrades. I hooked everything up but I'm not sure if I hooked each drive into the correct sata connection same as before. I might have got the two reversed. I booted up windows fine but I get a little error on my taskbar every now and then about a RAID access error. Does it matter if I got the two Sata ports mixed up or should I switch em?

I am pretty sure that is they were swapped then the RAID array would have been corrupt and not bootable. If they were swapped the damage is done and there will be no way that I know of to repair the array. Been there done that several years ago on an Abit KT7 RAID board and I lost the array.
Found a couple of people that did accidently swap cables and it was unbootable even after swapping them back. So I think the access error is unrelated unless there is some difference between you controller and theirs which was an SiL and you have a Nvidia.
I think you're right. I got the error about 3 times over the course of 30 mins. Nothing happened though, no blue screen, nothing happened so I guess I got lucky.
