I'd highly recommend a dedicated PCI card rather than the onboard Raid. Dedicated cards generally give better performance.

Anyway, I can't remember the exact model, but I used to use an Sil SATA RAID card in my rig. I think it was the 3112, but can't remember for sure. Just look for a cheaper card on newegg that has good reviews, can't go wrong with that.

I have a dedicated card controlling my RAID on this board and i think it works very well and better than previous boards i have had with on board RAID. I have a 4 way Sil card like SgtSpike above and agree with him 100%. Much better way to go and you cant go wrong.
Also gives you a nice little extra RAID bios separate to your main bios where you can quick format drives and set them up into which raid set up you want. Also some nice software utility's.
Good luck!

Please correct me if I am wrong but I thought the DS3L board could not use the PCI-Express 2.0 cards? and what is the major difference between the two? I was thinking on upgrading from EVGA GeForce 8800GTS 320MB PCI Express x16 to EVGA 640-P2-N829-AR GeForce 8800GTS 640MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 ($259.99) or EVGA 512-P3-N841-AR GeForce 8800GTS (G92) 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 ($269.99) Both are in the same price bracket

is having more OB ram (640 Vs 512) better that the new G92 chipset?

Im dazed and confused

The new G92 GTS will blow the old one out of the water. I score about 2,000 more 3d marks with my 8800GT then my 8800GTS 640. And I have used both in this board so they are backwards compatible.

It appears so from current benchmarks. You can compare the two cards specs here

The 640 is only better in memory bandwidth because it has a larger memory interface of 320 bit over the 256bit of the new G92 GTS.

yepper, the 512 gts is the way to go!

Anyways about the raid, what raid cards are you guys using? I have been considering raid for storage and as such will just use vista as the controller (software RAID). Anyone else doing this?
