Good ATA RAID 0 card?

Hey everyone:
I was interested in getting an ATA/100 RAID card and was wondering which one was the best. I just want to do RAID 0 and spend about $100USD. I saw Promise and Adaptec, but wasn't sure which was the best? Or is there another better than those two? Thanks!

  1. Promise would be better than Adaptec, and it's better than the ones with HighPoint chips.

    -----------------
    Whoever thinks up a good sig for me gets a prize :wink:
  2. yep, i would have to agree there. Promise is the better in the fact that it has better features.
    Eg. Promise - you have a 20gb and a 30gb. you can raid0 and have another 10 drive
    Highpoint - in the same scenario, that 10gb would be as good as a gun without bullets.
  3. I have IWill's ATA100 RAID card, and an totally pleased with it. Though I would definitely have opted for Promise had I not gotten this one. I have a Promise ATA100 controller (not RAID) on my Asus A7V. It has worked very well for me.
  4. I found the Promise FastTrack100 TX2 for 75.00 on www.newegg.com Great company to deal with too.
    Good luck.

  5. Thanks for the info guys. I was leaning towards the Promise card but just needed a little more convincing. Thanks again!
