Hi,
I'm planinning on buying 2 x HDD SATA II 1000 GB WD Caviar Blue 10EALS, 32 MB, 3,5", 7.200 rpm, WD10EALS and put them into RAID 0 on ICH10R controller on my Gigabyte EP45-DS5 mobo. My question is can I later add non-RAID SATA disks to my PC using SATA connectors on that same ICH10R controller? Thanks!

Yes, you can add non-raided drives to the controller later.

You sure can. Also the Caviar Black performs better than the blue, but the price for the green and blue drives are cheaper.
