My System Specs

Default

the PERC5i is not a bad card is just that is a bit out of date, and in order to do RAID5 would need to have the battery attached and the memory module, and it has a SFF8484 SAS connector which would require that you get the necessary breakout fan cable to 4 SATA connectors which in general is twice the price of a mini SAS SFF8087 to 4 SATA break out cable. I would go instead with something a bit more modern like the LSI card presented in the BST thread here http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...aid-cards.html
