If you are going to be using 6 drives or more, then you probably will need a dedicated raid card.
If you are looking at 4-6 drives, and your motherboard has the sata ports, you can stripe the drives using Windows.
You can do Raid 0 and Raid 5 with Windows 10.
The nice thing about doing it this way, is you can take those drives to another Windows machine and they will work. With a dedicated raid card, it will have to be moved as well.

I have a 4 drive 12tb raid striped with Windows 10, running in RAID 0. I get 650MB/s read and write speeds.

Speaking of a hardware Raid controller:
