I personally would reccommend the HighPoint RocketRAID series (we use the 
1820A here on a dual Opteron system running 5.4/amd64)   We are using the 
HP-provided hpa.ko amd64 kernel module, but thanks to HighPoint and Scott 
Long, -CURRENT, 6.0 and 5-STABLE now have the amd64 driver integrated 
into /usr/src tree . (a previous i386 version of the driver has been there 
since 5.3)

Best Wishes - Peter
