In a recent DV magazine article or Mac Addict they compared ATA PCI solutions...the HARDWARE Raid boards edged out the software cards by a bit. I have the Sonnet 133 RAID and it smokes. I have four 80 gig IBM Ultrastar drives inside a Dual 1 gig Mac and it is an awesome setup.

I have no doubt they will handle the load. Another drive option is the Seagate Barracuda ATA100 80 gigs which sell for around $120 each. The Sonnet card costs around $140. So for $600 and change you'll have 32 gigs plus the 80 internal.
