People seem to be doing OK if the RAID card is their Perc/6i, which has an 
LSI Logic MegaRAID SAS 1078 chipset under the hood.  There's some helpful 
benchmark results and follow-up meesages related to one of those at

That said, I consider the rebranded LSI cards a pain and hate the quality 
of Dell's hardware.  Seems like everybody I talk to lately is buying HP's 
DL380 instead of Dells for this level of Linux installs nowadays, I 
haven't gotten one of those HP boxes myself yet to comment.
