My System Specs

Default

holy mis-information batman. It's not a software RAID card... that raid card does not do RAID 5.. hence the lack of a parity computational chip. I own that card (among many RAID cards) and it most certainly is hardware raid.

If you can get a quality hardware RAID 5 card with onboard cache jump all over it! You will thank-yourself in the end. Tho to most folks, hardware RAID 5 cards are not affordable (like you asked).
