Larry,
The FutureDomain card you mentioned in your post to questions@freebsd.org
is a non-busmastering type SCSI controller; you'll be sacrificing
some of the efficiencies of SCSI since I/O transfers will require
the attention of the OS, not merely the setting-up & results.

People constantly say that the best inexpensive PCI SCSI busmastering
cards are those using the NCR 53C810 (or whatever the part number is),
but even there, your're best advised to buy an original NCR card:
Symbios Logic PCI Host Bus Adapter SYM8150S (with BIOS)
			or	   SYM8100S (without BIOS, for MBs
						with the SDMS bios)

NCR Microelectronics is now independant:
Symbios Logic 1-800-334-5454
