Buying a RAID card
From various reads around, buying a used Dell PERC 5i or 6i on eBay seems like the best option for hardware RAID. My question is: What should I look for besides the PCI bracket and RAM?
Seems like all the sellers give the part # but I can't seem to find any info using these part#.
You'll probably want to get the backup battery unit as well.
don't forget the SAS cables. You will either need a SAS cable or a SAS to SATA break out cable. Also keep in mind the dell uses the older SFF8484 type connector and not the newer minisas connector that most cards use.
