Hello 64 World - My proposed 3Ware system

See the thread "Very low disk performance on 5.x" for details about RAID
and FreeBSD that was using that MB with 244's and a Highpoint 1820a.
Note: With 2 disks your options are very limited RAID 0 or RAID 1 so
dont expect both redundency and extra performance.
That RAM looks VERY expensive I paid £187 for 2Gb.

Subject: Hello 64 World - My proposed 3Ware system

I am going to build a new server! (I'm excited) below is my shopping list, this
all started with a desire to have a Raid FreeBSD system.  RAID led me to 3Ware,
current offerings from 3Ware were of *only* the 64 Bit PCI flavor, my current MB
didn't have it [Cheep SIS with (1) Athlon XP2400+ with WD PATA IDE 40GB]  So I
looked for mainboards that had a 66Mhz 64bit PCI slot, from 3Ware's hardware
compatibility list.  Found a good one I hope with the Gigabyte board. So now I'm
thinking instead of FreeBSD 5.3 or 5.4 to go with the FreeBSD-AMD64 version.

Comments welcome, anyone see any issues?

Anyone else have a Gigabyte board with (GA-7A8DW  AMD 8111/8131)
Chipset running AMD-64?

Also my video card will be a Geforce 4 Ti 4200 4x AGP, I like to run X so
I can see high res real time logs...
