The former are SCSI disks and the latter is an SATA controller.  The
combination would have a transaction rate of approximately 0.

I can vouch for the Areca controllers, however.  You can certainly
achieve pgbench transaction rates in the hundreds per second even with
only 5 7200RPM disks and 128MB cache.

Don't forget to buy the battery.
