besides personal preference and insight, you might want to re consider the software vs hardware raid, i just find the kernel more reliable and
forgiving then any controller.

one of the major reasons I use software raid on small end systems (like
home/soho), is that in the case of major hardware failure, like your
RAID card, you can just drop the disks into a new server and it all
'just works', instead of having to find an identical RAID card ....

3w65xx are compatibel with 3w75xx and with 3w85xx plus 3w95xx

This is WHY I use heavyly 3Ware controllers.
BTW, - ICP/Vortex controlers are compatibel too.

I am not a big fan of 3ware Raid controllers. Up until now it was because
they were just plan SLOW...

As of yesterday, I have discovered that the standard etch 64 bit kernel 2.6.18-5
does not work correctly with these cards and causes data corruption.

If you want to do it cheap, use Software Raid.
