I believe the Nforce2 Ultra400 is the older version of the Nforce2 
chipset these motherboards would probably have an external taiwan based 
RAID controller chip on the motherboard, you want the Nforce2 
Ultra400-Gb based motherboard which would have RAID based purely from 
the nforce2 GB chipset.

These GB based Nforce chipsets are brand spanking new, I have looked 
around a bit on the web and I can only see 1 motherboard maker with a 
motherboard out based on them and thats for the Nforce3 Gb version

Probably be a few more weeks or maybe a month or 2 before you can buy a 
motherboard based on this chipset.
