I have had really good luck with the 3ware 8xxx cards for some time.  A 2 
port version can be had for ~$100USD.  I have quite a few running 4.x and 
now RELENG_5 with great results.  You can also pull off the SMART info from 
the drives via the smartmontools as well as monitor the status via CLI and 
httpd apps.
