My 2c: RAID cards suck, because they are difficult to monitor consistently.
For a lot of my systems, I've been deploying gmirror, which can mirror a
pair of drives, even at the system level. Works great, easy to monitor
through standard tools, no firmware / driver / kernel version / userland
conflicts and generally better performance.
