I just picked up an Intel 520 120GB SSD. I have two 1TB drives I need in RAID 1. The SSD will be going on the sata 3 port and the other drives on the sata 2 ports. My question is which way do you think I should configure it:
1) Set BIOS to AHCI. Once in windows, create a RAID 1 using Intel Matrix Storage Console
2) Set BIOS to RAID. Install my OS and create my raid through the BIOS.
Which method would you recommend and why?

Probably a Hardware RAID, if you make it in the software you might have issues. If the data on them is backed up to an external drive, or doesn't really matter, then do it in software, if it goes, it goes.
