If I buy a non - RAID card, can I still use Windows to make a striped array?

Hello, thank you for reading this.

I was wondering if I buy a non - RAID card, will I be able to use the Windows Disk Management program to create a Striped Volume with disks on the non - RAID card? So, for example.
If my 4 SATA ports on my motherboard are occupied, can I add drives to a non - RAID card, then use Windows to create a Striped Volume?

It is just a question, I couldn't find answers for this question originally, so I made a question here about it.

Thank you for reading this, have a good day. :)

Assuming the non-RAID card is some form of an HBA (Host Bus Adapter), you can create a software RAID within Windows using Disk Management. To simply answer your question, yes.
