Default buildin a sata raid with ide hard-disks

Here's my plan
there is a Sata-Raid controller on my mainboard.
i have one 80 gig 7200 rpm 2 mb cache Maxtor ide HD.
i 'm planning to buy a second one, and two ide to sata adaptors.
And build a raid on that base.

any comments/toughts?
my local hardware guru says its a no-show.

sell your IDE drives, buy new SATA ones. will come to a loss of ~€60, which is basically the cost of the convertors. And that way you are set with new drives and no worries for lateron.

does a build in sata raid controller put a heavy load on my cpu, compared to a pci ide adaptor?
more or less?
