Default RAID question

i havent build my own computer (yet hopfuly soon), so there is still some stuff i am alittle shaky on.

this is kinda a noob question, back to raids, i know what they are, and how they work, and the different kinds, but i was looking at motherboards, and it said what raids it was capable with, but does that mean you have to have a RAID, or could you use a single hard drive?

(expet alot of threads being posted by me the next few days as i am looking at parts)

It's just that it CAN use RAID, but one drive works fine.
