Raid drivers

Hi all,
Just putting together a list for my new October build for the W7 launch and am going to go with a "Raid 1" set up using 2x wd caviar black 1tb drives.
I have not gone down the raid route before but understand that raid drivers needed to be loaded by floppy during installation.
I was hoping not to have to buy a floppy drive so wanted to know if in W7 USB support was available during install to allow raid drivers to be installed from a mem stick when prompted??

You will not need a floppy. CD and USB will be available.

For most systems Windows 7 has the RAID drivers included so you don't need to use a floppy or CD. What motherboard do you have?
