RAID 10 Controller recommendations

I have a small home server that I would like to create a RAID 10 for. I am a developer and would like to use it for creating and testing applications, as well as for a home file server (pictures, videos, important files, etc). I have an on board RAID controller (Mother board is ASUS M5 A99X EVO) that is currently being used for the OS drives (two drives set up striped). I don't believe I can add a second RAID 10 array using that controller. I believe I need to look at a RAID controller in order to set up this RAID array.

I have been shocked at the price of RAID controllers. It seems like they are all $200+ (and can go way up). I don't need an enterprise level controller, I just need something basic that will get the job done. Are there any recommendations?

Thank you in advance.

    Look at the PM Hardware RAID.
    SPM393, or SPM394. These are independent raid controller

    Nice thing about this is you DO NOT need ANYTHING from the HOST system except a SATA port
