Default setting up a raid sata hd system.

i just put together a new computer and on someone recommended that i use a raid sata hd in it. i never set a raid sata system up. i've tried to see if i could get it up and running but no luck. the hd i got is Western Digital VelociRaptor 150GB. can someone tell me how i can get it up and running. thanks alot for all the help.

if it was up to me, my sound system would be worth more then the latest and greatest comp.

-Gigabite 880 mobo
-AMD FX -8350 Black edition
-Kingston Hyper X 16gigs
-Western Digital 1Tb HD
-GeForce GTX 660Ti

Default Re: setting up a raid sata hd system.

First of all an array is setup using two or more identical drives. What is seen there is a mirroring of one partition across multiple drives not simply the usual primary seen on a single drive whether ide or sata.

RAID1 is usually recommended seeing a mirroring over RAID0 which simply extending one primary across two drives. One guide for seeing an array setup can reviewed at How to Setup a RAID System | Hardware Secrets
