Possible Configurations

I'm in the process of rebuilding my computer, and I'd like to set up a RAID this time around. I currently have a 500GB hard drive (Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3500630AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive), and just purchased a 3TB hard drive (Seagate Barracuda 7200 3 TB 7200RPM SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal). I'd like to partition ~500GB on the 3TB drive for my photos and other important (read irreplaceable) files. Is it possible to set up a RAID (I think I want RAID 1) using the partition as the primary storage and the 500GB drive as the backup? Either way, what are my best options?

Motherboard is: ASUS P8Z68-V/GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68

I'm installing Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Let me know if there are any other specs need.

Thanks folks,

  1. with raid you need two of the same capacity drives, if you raid them the first drive will be 500gb and the 3tb drive will act as a 500 gb drive as well
