How did you test the transaction rate? I Have a 320-2e and 7*10K disks
in RAID5 running 6.0/amd64 at present. I could boot from a SATA disk
with current and see if I get any improvement. As it is now i can
read/write sequential to the array with about 200MB/s (with 256MB write
back cache on the card) but on real world random transactions I'm
limited by the seven 10K disks.

You mean the old cards with i960 CPUs? The adapters before the Elite
1600 that uses the old disk model? Sorry I don't have any of those left
anymore but you can always get them on ebay for $20 or so if anyone
still cares about them...
