Have a look at this, 3ware card (it comes in many sizes)


The card you specify is limited to 300MB per port (600M) limit, with 
modern drives this will be a serverly limiting factor.

I have the 12 port version of this card and can read at 750MB/s and 
write at > 600M (using raid5 array with 8x1G drives).

This is a PCIe card so you will need that class of motherboard.

Drivers for this card are already (and have been for many years) in the 
kernel and are well maintained.
