I'm currently running the following:
Athlon 64 4000+
ASUS A8N-SLI Delux (NVidia NForce 4 chipset)
400GB Western Digital 4000YR SATA II drive
I'm running FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE on this box for several months now
without a problem. I have no experience with PCIe Gig Ethernet or
Pseudo-RAID. Have you thought about a SATA RAID board from Adaptec or
Promise? There is a ton of information available for running Adaptec
SATA RAID on FreeBSD 6.0 (At least, I saw a ton. However, I was looking
for info on ATA RAID for my Adaptec 1200A I just setup).
The board has 4 regular SATA, 4 RAID SATA and 2 PATA ports.
I'm not sure if this info helps you but feel free to contact me offlist
if you have any specific questions.
