    I'm looking for a cheap (<$100) PCIe SATA RAID controller that will work well with a couple of stripped SSD's as my Win 7 boot drive.

    This will be in an Optiplex 790 if that matters.

    I'm specifically thinking about using a couple 256GB Samsung 830's as they're pretty cheap right now.

    Most reccied are prolly LSI SAS2008 controller cards including LSI 9220-8i, IBM M1015, and Dell PERC H200. Alternatively there is the Supermicro AOC-SASLP-MV8 (Marvell 88SE6480). 'Nutha lower cost option may a 3.5" enclosure with integrated RAID controller for dual 2.5" drives.
