Get an Intel SRCU42X. It's a relabeled LSI MegaRAID 320-2X with Intel
firmware. Works well with the megaraid drivers, blazing fast and
reliable. Its monitoring daemon is also bearable. I've been using one in
a production server for nearly a year and it has been working without
any problems. My reason to choose this over the LSI one was that it
was(is?) much cheaper here in Hungary.
