in regards to raid cards being expensive yes they can be . How ever the current raid card i am running cost me less than $130 bucks used and is a solid performer. Check ebay for Dell perc 5/i (for raid 5 support) or Dell perc 6/i (for raid 6 support) you will need to do some modding (adding back plates and such). but for the price you can't beat these cards since they are SAS raid cards meaning you can either hook up 8 Sata drives witht eh righ breakout cables or hook them up to SAS expanders. Don't let the dell branding fool you it basically an LSI Mega RAID card underneath .
