This is my first build. I've been flying by the seat of my pants, but, fortunately, my machine is working flawlessly.

Pri IDE: n/a
Sec IDE: n/a

SATA2: n/a
SATA RAID1: Seagate Barracuda 7200.7/160 GB--RAID 0
SATA RAID2: Seagate Barracuda 7200.7/160 GB--RAID 0

I have a question about adding drives. I'd like to install drives that would add data integrity to my system. If I add 2 additional drives to the ATA RAID connections, how would I configure them for RAID 1?
I know that the board has the ability to have a RAID 0 +1 with four drives, but won't that slow down the performance of my existing array?
Could I add a second array in a RAID 1 configuration that won't slow down my current performance? (For instance, if I added (2) 320 GB drives configured to RAID 1, then back up my RAID 0 array to it?)

Please excuse me if this question doesn't make much sense, as I noted above, I am a novice at this. I have read in several places that RAID 0 is best for performance, and RAID 0+1 is still better performance than 1 drive, but not as good as RAID 0.

Please offer any suggestions you may have, along with any specific installation instructions as well.

Thanks
