Does it matter what chip or Sata port I hook my new OCZ vertex2 120gig up ?? I plan to clean install windows 7 64bit onto this as OS drive...

Is one chip better or faster than the other?

I plan to do a Raid Array of cheaper 7200rpm drive for storage at least 2X500gig or larger...

and I have a 300 gig Velociraptor I plan to use in combo with SSD for downloads/mydocuments/Mymusic folders...

Would I just use the first port for the OS drive... and the other ports for the others?

For logic sake, sure... SSD in your first SATA port, then additional drives in the remaining. It won't matter as long as your boot order in the BIOS is correct...
