Abit KT7A-RAID would be my choice for current Durons/Tbirds. You can use up to 8 Ide devices.

You can set up a RAID array with 2-4 hdds on the HP controller, and get either fast access RAID-0, or use the mirror setup for security.

You will have two IDE lines free for cd/r/rw/dvd.., and 6 pci slots for whatever you like..

This board supports (hopefully) some future cpu's and is loaded with oc features.

The best thing is that it is just a minor upgrade from the Abit KT7-RAID ( a highly respected board) and should work as well.
