I had to RMA the new board I bought for my E4400 and ordered a GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L. While I will gain a great overclocking motherboard, I will lose the ability to RAID my OS drive. I am now toying with the idea of using SCSI for my OS and other non-critical data (I don't consider the OS critical ). I have tried to learn everything about SCSI, but it all has me really confused. My first question is if SCSI cards will work in RAID configurations. I understand that there are enterprise level SCSI RAID cards, but those are expensive and usually of the PCI-X flavor. Would a card like the LSI Logic PCI Ultra160 model LSI20160 be able to do a RAID-0? PCI SCSI cards can be had pretty cheap, as can the hard drives. I could just buy a SATA add-in card with RAID capabilities, but the 15,000 RPMs of SCSI drives is just so enticing...

If anyone can answer that first, I can ask more questions as I dive deeper into this idea. Thanks!
