I'm using a kg7-raid mobo with maxtor 100gb and maxtor 40gb HD's. Whats the best way to get the best raid preformance without sacrificing nearly 1/2 of my hard drive capacity.

There isn't.
Unless you keep the 100 and 40 drives on separate RAID setups. Or span them, but that's not really a RAID.

like fatburger said your either got to get another 40 gig maxtor or loose 60 gigs of your 100 maxtor (what a waste that would be)
i use 2* 20 gig ibms in raid0 & my old 45gig drive the kids use for there games ect that way i dont waste my old hd & it keeps my data away from my meddling kids!!!!

Hmm, isn't there a way to partition the 100GB hard drive in to a 40GB Hard drive and a 60GB hard drive? And then you could RAID your 40GB hard drive with the 40GB partition?

You could do that in software, but then it becomes a whole lot of effort for not much gain.
