I am working on setting up a home file server, and my little wd 2tb green drive is just not cutting it anymore so i am thinking that i will buy 8 wd red 3tb drives and put them into raid 5 because after doing a bit of stats that is how much i will need initially (20tb) but at the same time we all know i will fill it up so i am probably looking at getting a card that either has 12-16 disk abilities or a sata multiplyer combined with a raid card. What are the recommendations you have, I would like to limit the controller/card to $500 but can go over a bit if need be.
