SATA/RAID Slowdown?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I have a machine that has SATA/RAID capability that I have never used.
Now I am considering it - but since I am at best a novice on this,  I
have to ask.

Will the presence and activation of SATA/RAID slow my machine down
overall?  It is a AMD 3200+ Athlon64.  I notice slow-downs already
whenever I multi-process applications.
