    I havent seen or used one of those in production in a while, but back when we did use them they worked fine. Make sure your OS has drivers for it, as I dont recall how long ago 3ware stopped updating drivers and utils for those.

    AFAIK, all of the cards use the same native Linux driver, which is nice and solid. We've had a lot of timeout issues with WD drives on 3WARE so I would recommend Seagate.
    Game Servers are the next hot market!
    Slim margins, heavy support, fickle customers, and moronic suppliers!

    3ware has always worked well for us.

    Make sure you get RAID Edition drives if you get WD's. That is a good card, it has a web and command line interface tool to check your RAID array and you can set it up to email you if your array is degraded.
