external storage solution
on Dec 16, 2004 at 3:24:34 am

First of all, I know nothing.

What I have:
Dell 420 Precison Workstation, PIII - 1000 MHz
w/ (2) 18 gb striped ultra 160 scsi hd,36 gb ttl for A/V drive
& (1) 9 gb ultra 160 scsi hd for system drive
& 2 channel scsi controller (adaptec AIC-7899) - secondary channel only has 40 Mb/s through-put (external 68 pin scsi connector is secondary channel)
* (1) of the PCI slots has port extension that supports RAID card

What I need:
External Raid ≈ 500 gb (prefer SCSI drives but will consider firewire 800, not price sensitive)

Conditions:
(1) may change to Mac platform in future, so must be compatible
(2) very fast throughput

Question:
Based on the above info, what is the best external storage solution for me and what do I need to make it happen (controllers, PCI Raid cards, cables, etc...)

Again, I'm not price sensitive but I prefer to get a lot of bang for my buck. Thanks to all who respond, it's communities like this that add so much value to the internet. Cheers!
