For RAID drivers the situation is a little more complicated. The SATA and RAID drivers usually come in the same package, since it is the SATA controller on the motherboard which does the RAID as well. What complicates the situation even more is that Windows XP doesn't come with any SATA drivers at all, so to be able to install XP on a SATA drive you need to have separate SATA/RAID driver package and provide it to the setup during the windows installation. Windows Vista is better in this regard, and can work with many SATA controllers without any extra steps. What RAID does is spread out the data over several identical drives in a fashions, differing depending on the RAID level (RAID 0, RAID 1 or so forth). Actually setting up your hard drives in a RAID is not necessary to install windows or run the computer.
The first step would be to figure out if you are installing Windows on an SATA hard drive, and if you'll need third party drivers during the setup to get it working. Your motherboard has both SATA and IDE/PATA ports (here
is a picture where the SATA ports are the small red and black ones, while IDE/PATA is the big long red one). What kind of hard driver are you going to install the OS on (SATA or IDE/PATA)? And for that matter, what OS?
The BIOS usually does a good job to set up the timings of the RAM by it self and unless you have problems with the computer (or want to overclock) your best bet is to leave them alone.
