Amazon.com: 0.5M Internal Sata SFF-8484 To 4X7PIN Sas Cable: Electronics

I want to buy a perc 5/i raid card but i want to raid 8 hdds. 2 in raid 1, 6 in 5 however it appears that there's only a single slot to plug that item into. I need enough sata connectors to plug into 8 hard drives, not 4.

Can someone help me find that item, but in 8 sata connectors and not 4?

Wow, after days of searching i FINALLY found the answer. It has 2 ports to connect with. I can't believe network admins, 2 other forums, and google gave me that much trouble.

Why in the world do you need RAID 5? RAID 5's overhead isn't worthwhile unless you have enterprise class hardware (10,000 RPM SAS drives vs SATA, 15k if you can do it) and the appropriate hardware controller. You're much better off using RAID 10 (or 1+0) with 7200 RPM SATA drives.
