I am seriously toying with getting a couple of raptors and a SATA Raid card (merry Christmas to me ), but I'm not sure which RAID card to get for the system in my sig. I have SATA on-board but it's the SIL chip and I've heard nothing good about it. So I thought I'd get a SATA PCI RAID card. The brands I've looked at so far are Promise and Highpoint but I've heard Promise cards have issues with nForce2 boards and HighPoint performance is not all that great. Then, I've heard about problems with performance due to write-back caching. I'm not gonna spend ~$350 on something that's not gonna work well.
