There is a huge advantage to software raid on all kinds of levels. If you have the CPU then I suggest it. However you will never get the performance out of software raid on the high level (think 1 gig of cache)
that you would on a software raid setup.

It is a bit of a tradeoff but for most installations software raid is more than adequate.

Which makes me think that I will use Software Raid 5 and convert the price of the card into RAM.
        This should be nice for a budget server.
Gonna investigate now if Linux software RAID5 is rugged enough. Can always buy the a card later if not.

        Thanks all for the advice, you were really helpful.
