Post Compatible SATA Card
I have two poweredge T310's with the built-in PERC S100 sata/raid controllers that appear incompatible with any module I try loading. Can anyone suggest a no-frills, low-cost but reliable sata card that is absolutely known to work with ESXi 4? Needs to be PCI-E.

I haven't used one myself, but the Dell Perc 5/i (rebranded LSI) seems to be a fairly popular choice and you have the option of battery backed write cache to improve performance.

hope this is ok to bump/post here.

wondering how the rest of the experience with esxi 4 went on the dell T310? im trying to figure out if i want to piece together and build some white boxes or take advantage of dell specials.

please post if you eventually got your T310 working! i may spring for a $599 special at dell for one.
