Hello. I have an Areca ARC-1260 16 port sata II hardware raid card that was for a project that fell through. I've been using it in my personal machine for a short while but it's just overkill. It requires an X8 PCIE slot to function. It comes complete with everything that came with it (box, manual, driver disk, cables, 256mb memory). I have removed the speaker (beeper) but will send it with if you need it. I've seen it as low as $720 on ebay so I'll do one better and go with $575 shipped (US only sorry) and will entertain any reasonable offer. I'll also consider trading or a partial trade for a motherboard, memory, cpu or video card depending on what it is or a smaller (6 port or so) hardware raid card. PM me with any offers and I will take a photo if you like. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
