I need to add a new RAID controller in an old HP ML350 G2 server. The old card includes graphics and network controller, so the card will still be used, but the RAID controller is wasted.

I need a RAID controller like the SmartArray 641 for RAID5. Is such a new card supported by an elderly server? Does HP or DELL or other server manufacturers have any guidelines on such legacy support, or can I just trust PCI-X support as universal..?

Would I be better off going for a SmartArray 431, which has little or no warranty?
