I have an Asus P5N-D motherboard which includes the NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI chipset. The motherboard has 4 Serial ATA 3Gb/s slots and the chipset supports RAID 0, RAID 0+1, RAID 5, and JBOD. I currently have a RAID 1 setup. However, I'd like to add another hard drive (an SSD) which will become my primary drive while the RAID 1 drive becomes my data drive. Is this configuration typically supported?

So far as I know this should be fine, on most raid controllers you should be able to set whether a disk is handled by the raid controller or the BIOS. Most probably this setting is in the bios, however check in both places.
