I see these systme nowadays with like 60 gb blah blah hard drive.. and then.. a raid system thingy.. now.. I'm a n00b when it comes to hardware..

but isnt a raid a thingy to connect 2 hardrives to make it into 1 drive? if it is.. then how com there's a raid thingy for 1 hard drive? what's it for?

so if it's actually a 60 gb hard drive.. I can take out the raid and it'll cost less money rite? I mean. .the raid thingy is prolly useless if I don't add anohter drive..

its most likely built in to the mobo but if they offer a non raid mobo then it should be cheaper
