You would need a SCSI raid card but as it would need to be PCI to work with your board it would be pointless, you wouldn't get the speed you are paying for.

If your not a bussiness planning on spending a couple thousand, best thing would be on-board SCSI but if you want PCI-X 133 Mhz slot or at the slowest PCI-X 100 Mhz.

You need a pci controller card, as most motherboards other than server have on board conectors for scsi.

Yeah but PCI would defeat the purpose of SCSI it would be a major bottle neck.
