Best budget RAID card for 8TBx4 RAID 6?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I'm looking to setup a secondary storage raid on my file server using hardware raid. What's a good raid card around the $100-$200 range that supports 8TB drives and raid 6? I'm currently looking at the H700/H800 Perc cards that are supposed to support drives over 3TB. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

If you are willing to go with used server equipment then I would say something like the HP P410. You can get them between 50-200 bucks on ebay.

Great card and will do everything you need. All you have to do is get a SAS to sata breakout cable. Has cache, battery, etc. I did some research (which I recommend you do the same) to make sure your drives will work with the controller. If you are buying new then a RAID controller for your needs will be likely 300-500 bucks. If not more.
