if your using pci then your choice of hardware raid controllers is going to be quite limiting as a 32bit pci bus just doesn't have the throughput for that kind of solution. If it were me i would be considering loading either freenas or openfiler and using linux software raid or windows home server and using drive extender. i have used all three and IMHO they rate as following.

Openfiler
WHS
Freenas
