Dell PowerEdge 2600 RAID addition

If your system is not equipped with the PERC4 RAID controller and you need to add it, be careful when ordering from Dell's parts division.

Their suggested part number 340-9626 costs $999.00. It is my understanding this is an add on card with associated cables. Although this may function, it may not be necessary.

Part number 340-7478 costs $299.00. It is the key and memory required to utilize the embedded PERC4 controller on the motherboard you already have.

Here is a link to a helpful Dell forum.
