Adding more space

Current specs:
AMD phenom II x4 3.2ghz 955
4gb gskill RAM
Asus m4n75td mobo
EVGA 460 1gb SLI
2 x 320gb Harddrives in RAID
Windows 7 64 bit


I do play a lot of video games, and so far I have over 250gb of games on my comp.
I was wanting to add on to the 640gb space, but I have no idea how to do that.

Could I buy something like a 1tb hard drive and just throw it in?

Do I have to buy a similar hard drive as the ones I have currently?

I'm not very sure how all the RAID stuff works.

So anything on adding hard drives, and adding them on to current striped drives would be great.

Thanks in advance!

you cannot add to a RAID.

you could install it and use the Disk Manager to partition and format it. It will then show up as a separate drive

Okay, I might do that with a new Hard Drive and just put my games on that drive.
