Fortunately you are wrong. Not about the price, but at a meta level.So C222 > C226 PCH? Or are the differences minute.
Also for 7.2k 4TB hdds, SAS is $100 more / harddrive... which I don't think warrants the price increase for virtually the same drive with the same cache. Or am I wrong?
An SAS controller is perfectly capable of handling a SATA drive. The inverse is not true, however.
So getting an 8 port SAS controller onboard is a pleasant bonus.
