Thanks for the replies.  :-)

PCIe x4, or x8?

Either. x1 would also be fine (if such a SAS HBA exists). I'd rather avoid x16.

How many SAS ports?   Internal or external?  Or both?

At least 1 internal.

Discrete or multilane connectors?

Either.  I need to connect to one internal SAS drive.

Pick from the cacheless LSI cards at Newegg.  They all work with Debian
6 "OOTB".


What is your definition of "out of the box" in this case?

The hardware is supported by the Debian installer.
