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 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.

Though admittedly, I wouldn't be able to know if that's the 'best' for your scenario...perhaps a gamer may have some better feedback on that...
