Do HDD have to be identical to run in raid? If they don't I might get this:
Western Digital Raptor WD360GD 36.7GB 10,000 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive - OEM

I'll put the OS and my most used games on this and get a other HDD in the future.

Oh, that is what I was wanting to do but I thought you said I shouldn't put 2 HDD with it in RAID. Got confused that's all.
