I am installing three new components into a system which currently uses 320gb HDD's in RAID0. How do I go about installing the new parts and re configuring my HDD's? (Given that they need to be as I'm not sure on this)

Thanks.

With a new motherboard, it's more like you are moving your RAID0 to a new system. This post has been useful to others: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/196922-32-switching-s... , why don't you start there?

I personally would back up the contents to one or more external drives before decommissioning the old system. That way, if anything goes wrong, I just build a new empty RAID and restore the backup.

-------------------------------------

Unasked-for advice: RAID0 has high risks of data loss. Be sure that you do backups. Better yet, buy a 1 TB drive and put your whole system on it, using the 320s as backup devices.
