I'd recommend an HD 4850/4870/GTX 260 Core 216, and a TP45HP, P5Q Pro, or Biostar I45 depending on your budget..

Most high-end Boards have RAID built in (like all the ones listed above this line), and to set it up, you set it up when you do Windows Setup.. but you have to configure your BIOS to make it read it as a RAID Array (I think I've confused you more..)

But you don't have to use a RAID Array, its just a suggestion

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
