    Cheap SATA III PCI-E card for ESXi 5

    Fujitsu or white box

    I won't need the warranty as it's only for my personal use I want it to be quiet and have low power comsumption. The server will run diskless or with one SSD, the VMDKs will be on a NAS. What do you mean with quad card?

    My favorite retailer has the FUJITSU PRIMERGY TX100 S3P E3-1220V2 with 2x4GB ECC RAM and 2X500GB HDDs for ~$600USD. For the same price however I can build a white box with the following specs: Intel Xeon E3-1230v2 (with Hyper-Threading!) 32GB RAM (non-ECC) Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H CHIEFTEC...
