well if you are not able to obtain a pci hardware raid card or able to use a pcie card. My next suggestion would be to use software raid but i do not trust raid5 in windows with dynamic disks. So i would recommend loading up either freenas or openfiler and setting up the software raid in linux. I have used both and they have both performed great. Or look at getting a license for Windows Home server v1 and use the drive extender technology. Right now NCIX is selling it for 139+tax.
