I think late model Dell (post the bad chipset problem, circa 2001-2?) and
IBM and Sun servers are fine because they all use simple SCSI adapters from
LSI or Adaptec.

Well I know that isn't true at least not with ANY of the Dells my customers have purchased in the last 18 months. They are still really, really slow.

Also - there are very big issues with some SATA controllers and Linux we've
seen, particularly the Silicon Image, Highpoint other non-Intel controllers.
Not sure about Nvidia, but the only ones I trust now are 3Ware and the
others mentioned in earlier posts.

I have great success with Silicon Image as long as I am running them with Linux software RAID. The LSI controllers are also really nice.
