I'm interested in setting up a VM box which will house 3 servers. All running Windows server 2003, and 1 being a 64 bit version. I plan to use RAID 5 for this server. Does ESX support this mobo when using the onboard RAID?

Intel ICH*R controllers are software RAID and the drivers with ESX(i) don't support that for ICH*R, Storage Matrix or nVidia MCP controllers. The best you can do is JBOD.

Sorry for the long reply. Was on vacation. JBOD is no good, need RAID 1 or 5. Any recommendations on a reasonably priced card I can get?

Newer LSI based RAID cards will give you health status so you might want to check our Perc 5 / 6 cards. At the bottom of the whitebox list are other storage controllers.
