Default RAID I need advice!!!

I am running a P5P800 ASUS motherboard and it does not have RAID configuration on the BIOS.I am looking to buy the AS8 ABIT because it is the only motherboard I see that has my configuration plus RAID 0/1 on it.Is there anyway I can setup RAID on my P5P without having to switch motherboards?And if I can set RAID on my P5P, I want to make sure it works 100%, not some cheesy setup.THANK YOU to whoever can answer this!!!

Yes, you have to get a Raid Card, witch installs in your PCI slot. These range in price. I suggest getting one of the best.

if you mobo have a raid slot, but no bios configuration, you will need the software on your mobo cd to enable.

my motherboard had the raid config driver hidden deep in the cd. it didn't let me know I had it on the setup screens.
