    I'm looking for some PCIE 2.0+ RAID Controller cards under $200

    Min: 2 Ports (if its only SATA-III , otherwise 1 SAS-3 works) and the card must support UEFI.

    Any suggestions?


    My independent research shows a good chunk of them don't except for the much higher price bracket.

    Are you looking to boot off the array?

    If not, I would look at the HP P410 w/ cache and battery (you can get the 256/512/1GB versions) for under $100.

    I ran this card in a home NAS for a good length of time and in a RAID5 array (4x3TB disks) I saw 1.2GB/sec burst with ~500MB/s sustained writes.

    Great card for the money and the HP raid software is very easy to use.

    Thanks.
    I'm not looking to boot off the array.

    Just looking for a card that works under an UEFI Only environment.

    The cards I know does are almost a grand for a single port without using a corporate credential.
