So, if I can get a decent RAID 0 PCI card that'd be better than using my CPU time on it, correct? Even if I'm a cheap person and get one of the worst cards there is, would that be faster or slower than software RAID? Particularly Linux's software RAID.
Probably one of these cheap card is not really hardware raid. It is raid relying on a software module/drover and a BIOS. As most of these solutions are lelying on proprietary binary only modules, you will not find easily a suitable module for amd64 architecture. Software raid is reliable and efficient on a linux system. Totally hardware raid systems are fine but most are using scsi which are not really cheap...
