I can't figure out how to set my ssd's to Raid 0. I found an option I think in bios that allows me to set them all to HD's, but I want to just set the ssd's to it and the standard HD's to normal. Please help. This is the last step to me being able to enjoy my new pc!

Instructions available in your mobo manual. If necessary, you can download it from the mobo manufacturer's website.

you must set the storage mode to raid this is best done with the drives that wont be in a raid disconnected. once the bios is set the computer will ask you to set up a raid array. follow the promps and select the drives for ssd's the strip size doesn't matter to much some drives perform better with lower sizes but you would need to test each one to find this out. I have a 3 ssd raid 0 and I choose 128k.once this is done and configured the system will restart and you can intall your os. after os install replugin you hdd and enjoy

Ok, thanks everyone. After hours of meddling, I finally figures it out. I found it in the mb manual. It was surprisingly easy. I didn't know I needed multiple drives to setup a raid. Doesn't matter too much though, I set two as my scratch disk for photoshop. Now I just need to transfer my files fromy old comp and install programs. I'm so excited! Thanks for the help everyone!
