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.

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 :)
