    SATA Raid card

    Can anyone tell me where I could get a 6 port SATA raid card (With RAID 0, I know its not technically RAID or 1+0 or 5)?

    If so how much have you seen them for?

    I have a 4 port one I pulled out a server. It is marked up as Promise Technology SATA150 TX4 if any use.

    @MatthewL: For what I'd be using it for that would do the job how much would you want for it?

    @jamesfed: The card would be used in a server but really as just a basic box for onsite disk to disk backups so it need not be enterprise quality.

    @wesleyw. If your server only has PCI Express slots, the SATA150 TX4 will not work because it is a PCI card. It's worth mentioning that the Promise website doesn't have drivers for OSs newer than XP/2003 (the card is 8+ years old!) and you will be bandwidth-limited too. PCI cards are typically limited to 133MB/s max.
