Two raid arrays, Two Raid controllers?

If I wanted to have 2 raid arrays in my system, ie: Raid 0 and a Raid 5 array.  And I wanted to use a hardware raid controller, would I need to controller cards? One for each raid?

Well - what scenario?
We use all HP equipment, so we're either buying the hp array controllers, or simply using the on-board ROC versions...

I know the Promise card is one a lot of admins around here use...
Is this for a server or desktop?

I am building a gaming rig. And I wanted to have all the hard drives internal. 2 drives in a raid 0 and 3 drives in a raid 5.
