if it says --> SATA RAID 0/1/0+1

No your not, as people have been saying, you don't want to use the hardware RAID.
You want to set the drives up as JBOD and then let your OS/Raid software control the drives and set them up in whatever raid type you want.
But that motherboard only has one pci-e x1 slot which will limit your future expansion (4 from the motherboard + 2-4 from one pci-e sata card).
