Hi Folks,

I am looking at building a tower server. i7 server. I will be getting a large case so i can put in 6 hard drives as i want to VM this machine and have it be a RAID 10 config. (i assume thats the best RAID for VM's).

I am not sure what components to use but one of the MOST important things is a RAID controller. Does anyone know of any good ones that can do this? onboard or not, as I'm not sure a Perc6i etc... would work in a homebuilt.

Please help
