RAID0/Drivers help

Basically i've spent the last 6-7 hours trying to have a RAID0 setup. It's the first time i've ever messed around with my BIOS, nevermind setting up a RAID0.

In terms of the BIOS, I changed the SATA Mode in the OnChip SATA Device menu to RAID and the Controller Mode (Storage Controller) in the Onboard PCI Device to RAID aswell. After that, I followed a guide to setup the RAID0 (CTRL+I menu etc) and then proceeded to install Vista 64 bit Home Edition and before I installed the os, I loaded up the Intel RAID/AHCI Installation Drivers (Universal abit > Motherboard, Digital Speakers, iDome, AirPace, Multimedia) and finished installing Vista. The problem is, looking at my performance index mark, I got 1.0/5.9 for Graphics when I had 5.9/5.9 before I had the RAID0 setup so my graphics card is obviously not functioning properly. The problem could be that I used the wrong RAID drivers possibly?

If anyone could tell me what the problem is, I don't think i'd be able to thank them enough haha.

If it helps, i'm using the aBit IP35 Pro Motherboard along with the Geforce 9800GTX+ Graphics card.

You need to install the drivers for the graphics card.
You can get them from here: http://www.nvidia.co...-driver-uk.html

The Windows Score index only goes up to 5.9 in Vista.

By the way, if you must have a RAID 0 configuration, be aware that if one of the drives fails, the entire lot will come crashing down and you will lose everything on them. Back up regularly and then some more.
