Adaptec is pretty good, but I personally prefer LSI.
Keep in mind that the card you listed is a very new generation of card with a new connector that is not well know yet. Most modern RAID controllers use miniSAS (SFF-8087) cables, where this card uses miniSAS HD (SFF-8643) cables.
I'm not sure what your plans are for this RAID array, but I seriously doubt you need that powerful of a controller. Are you running 8 SSDs in a RAID 10 or something? That is a serious RAID controller, and if you are RAID a couple spindle drives for a media array, you can do exactly what you need with a whole lot less.
LSI MegaRAID 9240-8i - $264.99 (less than half the cost)
RAID 0/1/5/10/50/JBOD, SATA 3, supports 8 drives, 256mb RAM.
LSI MegaRAID 9261-8i - $484.99 (if you need RAID 6 or 60)
RAID 0/1/5/6/10/50/60, SATA 3, supports 8 drives, 512mb RAM.
I personally own the 9261-8i above, that I run with a HP SAS Expander. I can connect 28 drives to that controller, and the combination works great. If you plan to do a RAID 5 (not recommend with 8 3TB drives or something), or multiple RAID 5s, or RAID 10...go with the 9240-8i and save a ton of money. You can pick up the HP SAS Expander for $200-250 on eBay, and still save money. Better than the HP SAS Expander is the Chenbro CK23601 which is like $300-350, I think. Still saving you money.
If you want RAID 6 or 60, go iwth the 9261-8i. I don't think you can get SATA 3 RAID 6 or 60 for much less (at least not with a quality controller).
Don't get me wrong, the Adaptec is really really nice, but I don't think it's needed unless running 15K SAS drives or SSDs, and even then I would question why a home user would need that (using it for SAN storage with multiple iSCSI Targets over 10Gbps Ethernet, sure...streaming 1080p MKVs over your LAN, no way). The new cables for that adaptec port are $40-50 each, but I think that controller comes with two cables that breakout to SATA, so you wouldn't have to buy them. SFF-8087 to 4 SATA cables are like $10-25.
