    HighPoint RocketRAID 1640 4-Channel Serial ATA RAID Host Adapter

    thats the cheapest one i could find but i dont know if its any good, reviews say it eats 70+% of your cpu on writes when in raid 5

    The cheapest "good" ones I'm aware of are the 3Ware cards that run about $300. Cheaper ones do RAID 0/1 fine but I dunno if I'd go with a Promise or HighPoint card for RAID 5.

    What is it you're planning to do with RAID 5 exactly?
