    Hi there. I'm looking for Raid controller for my PowerMac G5 2.0. I fed up with software raid. I have 2x2TB hard drives and constantly loosing one slice. Decided to buy a hardware raid card but cant find the proper one. I know i need a PCI-express but not sure which one model exactly. Any suggestions.

    PCI-X is not the same as PCI Express/PCIe. This is a last gen PMG5 that takes DDR2 RAM and has a dual-core processor, yes?

    No, you have PCI-e. As SuperJudge said, they are two different slots.

    Maybe google "PCi-e raid controller for Mac"?

    Thats what I would do if I wanted to find out about something. Try out self reliance at least once. It's great.

    The one thing I will suggest is to get a FirmTek card. They are pretty much the only company that still makes SATA and RAID cards for Mac and you would see that in a search.

    I know you assume that if someone ask a question here never checks google for possible answers. Well i did and come here to small community of people who share powerpc experience with other people when i could't find satisfying answers elsewhere. ;) anyway i got my answers i neede and im really happy about that. Don't really need to read obvious stuff.

    Thank you for everyone who assume that i have IQ higher then 70 and i've already did research and gave me good info :). Thank You
