you should really have some sort of raid to prevent data loss in case of disk failure.
once you have that it doesn't matter whether you use expensive disks that fail once in 5 years or cheap ones that cost half as much and fail in 2 years and get replaced for free thanks to RMA
out of those 10 ports only 4 or 6 are on intel. makes no difference anyway. personally i've had better experience with software raid than with hardware raid
