search for 3ware 8000 or 9000 series cards.
THeres another company begins with A (but not adaptec - adaptec's sata raid cards are the same silicon image chips that power the crapy onboard raid) but they are like £800 starting price
Adaptec's cards are awesome. I use one in my server and I am getting way higher speeds on my 7200 RAID 0 drives. Getting well over 300 MB/sec using SATA 3.0Gb/sec drives.
Adaptec's cards are identical to the onboard raid of most athlon based motherboards for SATA. If you can show me an adaptec raid card where they use their own asics and do a full hardware implementation rather then the silicon image software based "fake raid" let me know so that we can buy them in at coreix.
