A lot of people these days seem to use an SSD for the OS+large programs, and an HDD for storing everything else. I'm wondering, do you need to get a motherboard that supports RAID for that?

No, you don't need RAID for what you're talking about.

RAID is only for mirroring/striping data across multiple drives.

No, not at all.

RAID is using 2 or more disks as a single volume.

People that are doing that (SSD for boot / HDD for storage) need separate volumes.

Also, with a RAID you need identical disks for it to work.

You would need Raid if you are using Rapid Storage Technology where the SSD caches the HDD
