i have a need for a raid card to control at least 4 harddrives, but i'd like the ability to add a fifth. let me list the componants i currently have.

emachine t3025 desktop
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 3000+ Processor
QuantiSpeed Architecture operates at 2.167GHz
512KB L2 cache & 333MHz FSB
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Chipset: NVIDIA nForce2
Memory: 2X 512MB DDR (PC 2700) total of 1 Gig
Hard Drive:
120GB HDD 7200 rpm Seagate IDE
120GB HDD 7200 rpm Seagate IDE
40GB HDD 4200 rpm Maxtor IDE
40GB HDD 4200 rpm Western Digital IDE
Optical Drive: 48x Max. CD-RW Drive; 16x Max. DVD Drive; 3.5" 1.44MB FDD; 8-in-1

i would only like to spend about 30 - 40 dollars one this card. i'd like to be able to have the two primary drives(the 40 gigs) so that they are fast and not mirrored. i'd like the 2 other drives to be mirrored for storing my important documents, music and other media. i think? maybe the other way around.

any suggestions?? please help.
