Am upgrading puter and am considering Gigabyte GA7VAXP OR GA7VAXP ULTRA. Dunno which one. I believe both are raid. What i wanna do is use my 2xHDs + 2xDVD Rom + 1xDVDR + 1xCDR. Will I have to go for a raid board or is there an other way to run more than 4 ide devices. Can someone tell me where to find info on uses for raid, in dummy speak. Am running XPcorp. Ta in advance.

click here for an intro to raid.

You can buy an ide controller on a PCI card - typically they come with two controllers, allowing you to add 4 devices.

Don't forget to specify enough drive bays, plenty of cooling and a hefty power supply :)
