I am building a storage server and plan to put all my 250gb HD's in there.
I need a PCI card that will support 250gb ATA133 drives and MUST support RAID 5... i need that parity incase of a failure.
I would also like a card that can support 8 drives.
I did some reading and keep seeing the LSI Megaraid card has alot of bad reviews so im not sure i wanna go with this model.
My current budget is less than $100, i would preferrably like to spend around $60.
I would like some reccomendations from anyone who might have valuable advise.
If possible, please provide link to stats for any card you would reccomend.
