More about which option raid config
  1. If this is for home use then the motherboard option will work well for you. You don't really need to purchase a dedicated RAID controller.
  2. Its a leftover from another build so I can use it or not use. Doesn't really matter. Would it be better to use the raid card? Having a SSD for the computer also should the SSD system drive be better suited from motherboard sata or from pci express raid card sata?
