ML330 G3 - Looking for controller help!!

I have an ML330 G3 which of course is discontinued. I'm looking for supported array controller that will:

1. Work with the 330 motherboard.
2. Work with WIn2K3

Thanks,
JG

Jason:

Any Smart Array 5x or 6x controller should work with the ML330 G3. Probably the cheaper one available is the 641, depending on what you need to do with the controller. If for OS, then the 641 should work just find.

Forgot, one more question. The 641 shows that it's PCI-X. I can't remember for the life of me if the "X" will cause any problems in being in the older 330. I can't even find any tech specs on the 330 to see what kind of PCI slots it supports.

I do not think the "X" will give you any grief, but can't say for sure. It's been soo long since I have seen anything older then a DL380 G4.

Looking at the quickspecs... the 641 is listed as an option. A pretty good indication that it will work.
