I'm not a 3ware employee and I'd second that recommendation *if* you want
to go for something with battery backup and some oompf. If you just want
low end raid (ie 'I'm sick of disks dying' raid mirroring) then on a PCI
express box there probably isn't any point getting hardware assisted raid
of any kind.

A modern PC is rather good at doing RAID in software and PCI Express
fixes the main bottleneck of RAID1 in software. Its also generally true
that a desktop PC has lots and lots of spare CPU cycles to use for RAID
work.
