Re: My 1st build, need help...

I've read that there can be compatibility issues with the Marvell controller and SSD's, so I would suggest connecting the SSD to one of the Intel 6Gb/s controllers (gray).  You could connect the two hard drives to either the Marvell controller (navy blue) or the Intel 3Gb/s controller (blue).  Since hard drives don't have the sustained transfer rate of an SSD, you probably won't see much real world difference between the two controllers, particularly if running a RAID 1 array.  If running RAID 0, I would try the Marvell controller first.
