Hello,
I just upgraded my vertex to vertex 3 60G
Only to find the marvel chipset does not support raid until 9128

Is there a cheap pcix1 controller I can get with out having to upgrade my mobo looking for under 60.00 preferably < 30.00

You need a PCIe x4 or x8 RAID controller card to get maximum performance from any SATA 3 (6Gb/s) SSD; and of course you would need an available x4 or x8 slot on your motherboard to connect the card to.
The least expensive card on Newegg starts at $160: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You will probably get better Read/Write performance from 2 drives in RAID-0 on your motherboard’s SATA 2 ports than you would from a x1 card.
