Default A good PCI SCSI card?

Hi,
My buddy bought some very high end music software, and it never mention that he needs a SCSI hard drive (and a new Sound Card is what I said, he has the old Sound Blaster, but he doesn't think so *rolls eyes*), so he is going to need a good SCSI card for his Dell 8xxx (not sure which model, but its new, and its pretty good), to go with his 36.7 gig Seagate SCSI hard drive. I look on NewEgg, but there are so many, with brand names I have never heard of, and no reviews. Can anyone reccomend a good one that is $300 at the very maximum? He would really want to spend about $200 or less, but I told him that for a good one, it might cost the extra $100 or so.

Thanks a lot!

OK, here is more info...

This is the hard drive he IS getting- http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...111-124&depa=1
Here is a card I found that might suit his needs
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...118-024&depa=1
Now, an idea I thought of was, if he ever wanted to upgrade to a RAID setup, is there a good card for that?

Thanks!

Just a question, what software?

Most software now is fine with high speed IDE or sata as it loads most of the stuff into RAM

Is SCSI really worth the money?
