Thanks for the comments!
In the past two weeks, I've heard nothing but good about the 3Ware RAID
cards (both SATA and PATA) so we bought one. With it, I built a system
with 2.1TB (6 x 300GB) but its not working (won't POST) due to what
appears to be a bad MB. I'm going to go swap it out tomorrow and see if
that gets it going.
I also built a 1.2TB box using a combo of on-board PATA and a cheap
HighPoint Raid card (HPT372A) and that seems to be working well so far.
We'll try a 3Ware SATA card next!
