Hi Ari,

Dell's PERC 4e SCSI RAID controller is PCIe.  You could try buying it as 
a spare part from Dell, or on eBay like this one:


It's made by LSI Logic under their MegaRAID brand, so you may also be 
able to source it through an LSI Logic reseller.  MegaRAID has been 
supported in Linux for ages now.
