Re: SATA RAID 0 on nforce2 400 ultra chipset

But I think I will need the RAID from the mobo because I also need windows for gameing. Am I right?

The nForce is a fakeraid, i.e. it isn't actually RAID but software raid
with a BIOS GUI thrown on. So if you're thinking of hardware RAID, no
you can't do it. You can easily do Linux software raid over you two
drives, which is what I use on my VIA/SiliconImage chipset combination
with 4 drives. Read the Software RAID HOWTO for more info:
