Raid Enclosure usage

Dell / XPS 600

Specs: Windows XP

My Dell XPS600 Power Supply has blown and Dell can't source a replacement part (neat huh?), I've had the pc for a few years so I think I'll buy a new one, what i want to know is can I buy a raid enclosure and drop my two drives from the XPS into and then be able to access the data?

Thanks for any help or advice.

I believe it was RAID 0

The problem with RAID0 is that it writes data across both disks....unlike RAID1 which mirrors and is easier to retreive data.

I would suggest that you install the drives in an external raid USB enclosure and use a Linux Live BootCD to see if information is retreivable....
