I'm looking for a RAID controller card (cus my soykaf HP Z200 MB won't see bigger than 746GB drives!)

I need 4xSATA 6GB/s and support for RAID 0,1,5,6,10
Whats the cheapest card out there that fits?

Lets expand this into best RAID/storage configs and RAID general too.

Little Note on RAID:
RAID 5 with large drives is becoming less reliable - if you have 3x8TB drives and 1 fails - you need ALL the data on the other 2 drives to be 100% - or you loose everything... chances are on 2x8TB you might have a bad bit somewhere... Which is why I either RAID 10 or 6 (most the time) depending on if its an archive or live use.
