Final Thoughts

 

PCI Express is clearly becoming the standard for the future and it's good to see that the standard is being adopted by some of the big names in PC hardware.

 

It took nearly a year for AGP to become the standard when released and it's nearly one year now that PCI Express made its debut to the hardware world, however, with the benefits of PCI Express being so much more than PCI, its now hitting the market with a bang.

 

Highpoint have done a fantastic job with the RocketRAID 2320 controller card. Its small size, high bandwidth makes it not only the best server solution Mass Storage controller available, but for the home users who want massive storage possibilities, this card along with a board supporting PCI Express x4, you can make yourself a comfortable high density RAID setup.

 

Overall the performance of the Highpoint controller definitely justifies the extra cash you will pay in order to get yourself one.
