Controler card suggestions 2 port Sata II Raid 1 PCI-X (Under $15

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a (Minimum) 2 port, PCI-x Controler card for my 1u Dell sc1425 that can do SATA II and Raid 1, Bootable with Linux support (Gentoo) for about $150 or under.

#1 Question is for that price am I going to get something that is going to do hardware RAID or since I'm only doing RAID 1 it wont effect performance?

I have been looking at the

Tekram TR-834A

and

3ware 8006-2LP

The 3ware isint SATA II so It's on not exactly what I want.

Any suggestions?

That Tekram card is Silicon Image FakeRAID using a 3124-2 chipset. With that in mind, you'd be just as well off using the onboard SATA ports in your server.
