I plan on having two ssd's for my boot drives in raid 1. I also want two Hdd's for storage drives also in raid 1. Im new to raid setup. Is this possible without having a separate raid controller card or do i need a raid controller card to do two raid setups?

You should be able to run two different raid arrays on one controller. Even most integrated RAID controllers on the motherboards can typically handle two. What you have to make sure is that there are enough SATA ports on the motherboard/controller. I know my motherboard only has 2 ports that you can use for a RAID array.
