Default FS: SCSI Server/Workstation RAID Drives/Controller

I'm selling my workstation drives as I took down my server due to not needing it anymore. The following are for sale. I doubt anyone will bit here but its worth a shot. Keep in mind these are extremely reliable and blazing fast drives. In my entire work experience as an IT Engineer, I have seen ONE SCSI drive fail in a server, and it was a 9.1GB drive in a 15+ year old server. These things are designed to be rugged and last forever.

This kit includes everything you need to run a reliable and fast RAID 5 array in a server or workstation. This is a straight plug and play system. I will post pictures of the hardware and exact hard drive part numbers later if anyone is interested. The system includes the following:

1 68 pin 18.4GB 15,000 RPM SCSI hard drive (I used it for OS)
1 68 pin 36GB 10,000 RPM SCSI hard drive (I used it for Apps)
3 68 pin 150GB 10,000 RPM SCSI hard drives (I used them for RAID 5 storage)
LSI MegaRAID 320-2 SCSI RAID 128MB controller with backup battery unit (to support write caching), will work in 32bit (standard) and 64bit (server) PCI slots
Two 5-device SCSI 68 pin cables with terminators

I paid $100 for the controller, $60 for the backup battery (2 years ago), between $111 and $133 for each hard drive, all in used condition on ebay about 2-3 years ago, and $40 for each cable. This system cost me more than $600.

I'm asking $250 or best offer for the whole kit. If you think that price is not fair, feel free to make an offer. If nobody is interested, they're going up on ebay.

Will consider trades for a good 10" SQ sub, or anything else you think is of equal value.

I'm adding an additional 74GB 15,000 RPM drive to this for an additional $50, for a total of $300 for the kit. Last chance if anyone'* interested before this goes on ebay tomorrow.
