I have 2 WD Raptors in a RAID 0 config for my main drive and another Raptor which will be my Games drive. In Device Mgr it shows the Games drive as being installed, but when I open My Computer I have C:/ , D:/ (DVD) and E:/ (CD) drives, but not the Games Drive. How does it show up in Device Mgr. (which says it is working correctly) but not in My Computer?

You need for format the drive in Disk Management. Obviously, you formatted the RAID array to install Windows, perhaps during the install?

Start, CP, Admin Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management--a wizard will open automatically if the drive is not formatted.
