Raid 1 but my computer is too small for a raid controller. Windows raid or bios. Also, I am about to move to a new computer

So I am about to upgrade my storage to 2 12TB drives in raid one. Should I use the Windows raid software or the one in my bios. I ask because I have heard people say bad things about WIndows Raid and I'm going to build a new computer soon. Is it a pain to move from one motherboard RAID to another? My motherboard is an ASRock h87m-itx. I have never run raid on my computer before. Also, I just shucked a drive and it was a pain one more to go. As I said in the tittle a raid controller isn't an option. My only expansion slot has a GPU in it.

I think Windows soft raid has gotten a lot better than the earlier versions that had a bad rap.
