Windows 7: Noob needs some basic Raid0 Questions answered

Noob needs some basic Raid0 Questions answered

First time setting up raid0, have read some of the other posts on this board and just wanted some clarification.

Im installing win7 for the first time. I want to set it up in a raid0 config.
does it matter whether I use the 64 or 32bit discs? to my understanding the 64bit allows me to use more ram in the future, is that correct?

so should go with that?

also, have seen several posts saying that win7 has the necessary drivers and I don't need to download them separately. Confirm/deny ?

many thanks

also - the drivers that Im supposed to download they are for the mobo correct? not the video card?

this is my mobo

so I should download v1.16? 2007 doesn't seem very recent to me.

You may need to download from Asus.
