    Hi, im planning an upgrade soon on my computer because i got some extra parts to do so with. Basically throwing my current hardware in a new case with some spare things im came across.
    I have a eVGA 790i motherboard that im going to use for my new build. Now, currently im running RAID 0 on my ASUS p5b deluxe mobo. I use that for just my OS, and have a third drive thats not raided and use it simply for storage and backups.

    I also plan on running RAID 0 on my new system...but i want to throw a fourth drive in and create two pairs of RAID 0 drives. (two drives raided for my OS, and two drives raided for my storage).

    Basically im trying to find out if this can be done??? My mobo supports all raid sets...and all six SATA ports are raid capable....but i dont know if it can do a dual raid like im thinking


    Secondly, I also use acronis Treu Image for my OS backups, and frequently restore my OS to my "preffered setup of XP Pro" These images usually get stored on my storage drive(s)...which will possibly soon be raided also. :rolleyes:

    Does anyone see issues with this??? Like not being able to access the raided storage drives and what not?? Losing data is not a concern at all...i backup to another network computer and also and external drive....so thats not a issue. Just trying to see what i might be getting myself into before i find myself formatting and re-raiding numerous times only to find out its not worth it.


    Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

    Thanks for reading
