Default Re: Buying a hardware RAID controller

If you're using the motherboard's RAID, it's not software RAID, you just need the requisite drivers for Linux to get it to work. If there's no drivers for your board in Linux for that RAID setup, then buying a discreet card will be fine, as long as it has the required drivers.

Yes, you'll have to rebuild the array on the new card.

SATA 3 can work on SATA 1 if you had to. Obviously it would be limited to SATA 1 speeds in that case

A single drive on the motherboard set to IDE mode or AHCI should work fine in just about any OS.
