I just finished building my home server. I was wondering which Sata/Raid Controller and Network Card would be perfect/compatible with my system.
This is my system :
Team Elite 4GB DDR2
1. I need a Sata / Raid Controller Sata 2 with 4 ports which is compatible with my system. I did try searching in newegg. But I cant seem to find a card which is compatbile or I just don't know what to look for.
2. I also need a Network card with 2 or 4 Gigabit RJ45 ports. I just wanted to have extra for ports for traffic balancing / faster transfer. Am I right with this one?
1- unless you're going to spend a few hundred on a controller then just use the 6 built in Intel Matrix Storage sata adapters for your data drives and use the marvel or Sil for your boot, boot backup, & optical drives.
Anything under is like to really be software based and no better than what you already have.
