It's not that hard to set up RAID but before you decide on which Array please make sure you have some sort of back up devices be it internal or external because there is some risk of failing.(applies to even non-RAID system)

More informations of your specs will help but I'd guess you're onto RAID 0 obviously, to be honest RAIDing 2 ordinary HDDs hardly notice any significant performance gain at all.

Here's a video from Youtube to show you how to set to RAID 0 on a Gigabyte board, your motherboard manual should give you some info on how to achieve it too;
