I have a Wester digital 60gb 7200 HD and a Maxtor 60gb 7200 HD. Can I set up with Raid? What do I have to do to set them up? I hear only identicle HD get the best performance.

You'll need a RAID controller card, if your motherboard doens't have one built in.

It is best to use the same brand/model hard drives, as different brands are usually using slightly different platters and stuff in the hard drives.

here's some information you can read, to understand all what to do, and if you really need to do it.
