Should I Get a Cheap RAID Controller?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well I'm about to order my parts and I still have some money left over for my budget. I'm wondering if getting a cheap RAID controller would be worth it or not if I am getting a P5N32-E SLI. Do RAID controllers really give much of a speed boost compared to the onboard?

no, cheap raid controllers are garbage. don't waste money on it, just use the onboard.
