Oh yeah, i forgot to mention in my other post that i did some
between a 3ware and regular software raid.
The performance is roughly the same, but do put the 3ware card in a real
chipset. I had half performance on a via chipset, and full performance
a serverworks. It didnt matter if i used the 32bit pci, or the full
potential of the 3ware card, possibly because i only have 4 disks.
