Hi,

Im a first time builder and I have a few questions regarding some specific
components.

Here are the system components
Intel 975BX2 motherboard
qx6700 quad core processor
2 gb corsair xms2 ddr2 6400
evga 8800 gts video card
160 gb sata western digital hard drive 7200 rpm
enermax 1000 watt power supply

Okay , the first of im sure many questions to come

If I don't want to use a raid setup - do I have to use the 2 included raid
drivers with the 975xbx2 , I know that sounds stupid butI wasn't sure if there are other drivers on those disks that are required operate the hard drive properly. And I'm a complete NOOB.

Thanks

Not sure if the same applies but i have the 975xbx1 and the drivers for raid are there but you can configure the setup to be raid or single drive setup in the bios by selecting the AHCI setup instead of raid.

Hope this helps.
