ok, so RAID makes them as one drive, gotcha.

GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Could that board manage a GTX 260 and a Q6600?

It'll handle it, but you're better off getting something like this:

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

G31 is an old chipset. P45 is better. Better quality, more stable, etc. Also, if you ever got into overclocking, you'd be in a much better position for it.

Get the Corsair if you're going to get one of those two.

But you'd be fine getting this one as well.

Soo, if I have two SATA drives, do I need to have raid to use them at the same time, or am I not understanding raid?
Its not worth it for similar performance

Really? Because the 55nm one says minimum 500w here.

Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

And if you weren't getting that one, I would get it, since it's loads better with the 216 steam processors and smaller die size.

for the q6600, yeah, I may as well get an e7300 or e8400 right?

and I'm looking at the XFX one one the Canadian site.
