The controller they show uses a 64bit PCI slot. Very few desktop PC's have these. They were primarily intended for server class machines. You might want to find the service tag on your Dell and look it up on their web site. The service tag will allow you to pull up detailed information on the machine and you should be able to find out if the mainboard has a 64bit PCI slot.mike
woodsyi, the problem your setup is that you're using firewire, as far as i know there are no firewire raid cards in existence. However, you do have options, I believe you can use software RAID within windows, what version of windows are you running?
Nice hardware Phil.You probably will like the Lacie 1Terabyte external HDD (@$850 or less) better.
I use the ReadyNAS 600 from Infrant http://www.infrant.com. It runs SlimServer directly on the NAS box, supports RAID 0, 1 and 5 (default is 5), is a print server, sports very fast 1Gbps ethernet and a 1 TB configuration ran me about $1050 from Eaegis. Works like a champ.
What about this?http://reviews.cnet.com/Buffalo_TeraStation_NAS_1TB/4505-3382_7-31299300-2.html?tag=topI have heard good things about it, but no first hand experience.George
There are no 32 bit PCI card that will do hardware RAID 5. You have to go 64 bit PCIx for that. NAS is the only way I found that I can get hardware RAID 5 with my PC.
