    Well currently I have windows xp professional installed on a 41gb hard drive. You need 2 to acheive raid. So there for in a software raid I would need three drives? One for the OS and two for the raid?

    Yes for a software RAID you will as the os can't be raided in that fashion. :(
    You'd be much better off with a proper RAID controller fitted. ;)

    ok.......I"m getting myself a raid controller card I'm not about to spend money on a new mobo. Especially when I ahve so much growth ahead of me with this current one. I'll have an IBM 41Gig and a WD 40Gig drive hooked up to it. I found a controller card but in the description it says something about supporting up to ATA 33. What's up with that? Tell me if this is what I want or not.

    Yes make the most of it as the Athlon(socketA) will replace the Duron very soon when "Clawhammer" arrives most likely and alot only expect a few years left in socket A. ;)

    Well I figure that next year about this time I'll be thinking of a "Clawhammer" setup as by that time any teething probs will be worked out. ;)
    Hopefully a few ppl may want me to build few of them. :D

    :) That's almost what you want. You were right though, it only supports up to ATA33. Mainly because it's an older card. There should be plenty more out there. A couple good names to look for are Promise and Highpoint.

    I think I've heard of promise.....in fact I have most definitly heard of promise. Can you give me an estimated price range though?
