How do I set up RAID 0 on this machine?

The attached files give information about this computer.   I have 2 identical WD Velociraptor hard drives, one of which is in use, the other is a spare.   I want to set up RAID 0 using these two drives.   Do I need a RAID controller card or is the motherboard capable of setting it up without a controller card?

    So you are talking about setting up your computer to use hardware RAID correct? What is your make and model of your motherboard/or computer? Look at the support site / manual to see if your motherboard supports RAID and if it does see what it says about your RAID configuration choices. Keep in mind running RAID 0 gives you great speed, but if you lose a drive all data will be lost.
