SATA Controller Card that recognizes 3TB HDDs in Linux

I've been looking, but can't seem to find a relatively affordable SATA Controller Card that states it can recognize 3TB HDDs.  Speed really isn't a concern– I really just need the space. I am using 64bit Linux.

I found this one: HighPoint RocketRAID 2720, but 2 ports for $210 is a little out of my price range.  Are the drives just too new?

Thanks for any input.

HighPoint RocketRAID 620 this controller is shipped together with WD 3TB green disks. So, it support 3TB disks.

Thank you for the answer.  The review you linked to was very helpful.  I will be building  a new home server soon and I think these will work.

"RAID 620 this controller is shipped together with WD 3TB green disks "  GOING from this at left  I heard recently that "Green" drives operate at variable speeds, so may not be good for RAID application/use.

What do y'all  thnk?
