If you aren't dual booting a Windows OS you should consider just using
the card as a nonraid controller and use software raid. It doesn't look
like that card comes with battery backed cache, so it probably won't help
noticably with performance. By using software raid, you aren't tied to
the hardware and if the controller dies you don't need to buy the same
card to get your data back.
