So i set my absolute maximum budget to be 1200. Without my hdd's everything comes to $965.

I had planned on running two http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822148140 which would come to 1200. Then i kicked myself and remebered i needed a RAID card to set it up..andf rom what i seen they are around 100-200 dollars. i dont have that. So is it really worth it to setup a RAID0 rather than a conventional hdd? What are the benefits?

Nah not really, you get a boost from just having two drives, the added hassle and greater risk of data loss dont really make it worth it for what isnt a huge boost in performance if you actually get a boost, RAID cards are pretty cheap although most mobos these days have two built in.

I cant decipher some of the tech specs here, does this mo/bo have a built in RAID card?
