Smart Array P400/P800 driver for Vista x64

For SmartArray controllers will be created drivers for client operating systems like Vista 64-bit or Windows XP 64-bit?
Just i plan to buy in near futher P800 controller and MSA60 for my home workstation(real-time video) and can't found any drivers for Vista or XP in download centre.

I don't think you there will be Vista drivers for P800. Hp does not make desktop system drivers of server hardware. Windows XP x64 is afaik based on Windows Server 2003 x64. There is the same service pack for both systems and for example same NVIDIA drivers for XP x64 and WS 2003 x64. So I guess you'll be able to use P800 drivers for Widnows Server 2003 x64 edition. Keep in mind that SA-P800 uses x8 PCI-E connector, so you'll need approppriate motherboard that will support it.
