Recommend a good RAID card for new mac pro??

Any recommendations on a RAID card, other than apples OVERPRICED card. I am looking at the Highpoint 3522. I plan on running 2 raid 0's for the moment with 4 drives.

Thanks

I don't know of any other RAID cards that can be used in the Mac Pro other than the Apple RAID card. I would like to know an answer to this as well.

I have decided on the following

Highpoint 3522 Raid Card + 2 Infinband Cables $575
Enhanced Technology 8 Bay Enclosure $475
8 Seagate 7200.11 1TB drives $1600
Raid 5 or 6, haven't decided yet... Should get 450mb/s or more depending
on the amount of free space on the raid. Should be somewhere in the
6TB range.

I was also thinking of building two seperate raids with two 5 drive RAID 5's. It should be sufficent to support my EX1 footage.
