I need to make a decision soon on buying the DS3R or keeping this board and going with a raid card. If someone has any experience with a card with this board please chime in.
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.
