Erm, what are you doing with it? Without a little more info we can't really help one way or the other.

That Adaptec card is good, although personally it is not the route I would go for. For less money and more ports I would go for an 8-port Areca 1680 (either internal or external, depending on your system layout) and a 32-port HP SAS expander. Much more cost effective in my opinion.

This.

And how much are you spending for it again?

In all honesty, I'd also be looking to get a real UPS Battery backup system (ones designed for servers / high-end workstations, not the cheapy ones) for any system that had a RAID card at that level and that many drives connected...

That is the same card we have in 3 of our servers at work. I would say its a bit overkill for most applications unless you are running a lot of drives. We are running 14 sas drives and it has no problem at all. What are you using it for?
