Looks like it supports RAID natively so your going to see one of two things when you first boot the computer.

Either you'll see a RAID configuration option after the boot screen (usually something like CTRL F8 to Enter RAID config) or it will be in the BIOS in a sub screen.
Just setup a RAID 5 array and Initialize it. Windows 7 setup should take care of the rest. If it needs drivers, they should be included on your system board manual.

600Watt power supply could do it, but you;d probably want something closer to a 750.
