upgrading to SATA600
I recently purchased a dual C32 board, but this board only has SATA300, which I knew, but now I want to buy 2 Crucial M4 SATA600 SSD's, which have a very high throughput.
I need a pci-e controller card, preferrably with raid function, which has more then an x1 connection to the motherboard, since pci-e 2.x has 500MB throughput per lane, so x1 would hamper my speeds.
I have been looking around, but can't seem to find one, anyone have any ideas??
Thanks for any info.

I found 2 suitable cards:
highpoint rocketraid 640 and 644, but here the price difference between the 2 is like 100 euros. Can someone tell me what makes the 644 so much better that it is 100 euros more expensive??
HighPoint Global website
Nevermind, found the difference, the 644 has 4 eSATA600 ports, the 640 has 4 SATA600 ports, so I guess I'm lucky, I will be getting the 640
