You are looking for a lot of information. Rather than try to post that all here have a look at AC&NC's
descriptions of Raid levels and determine what level you want. Next you need to determine if your computer can support the level (or indeed any level) of Raid. What type of Motherboard (make and model number) do you have? CPU? RAM? IDE only or also SATA? Operating system?
By the way, putting urgent attention in the topic title is generally self-defeating. Everyone who comes here gets the same attention and asking for special attention will more often than not get you ignored. Everyone volunteers their time here and posts when they can. We all have lives beyond this forum and tend to those first of all. If you need help that urgently you may have to go to a computer store and pay for it.
