2. Basic System Board Setup > 16. Configure SCSI Host Adapters

Configure SCSI Host Adapters

Accommodate SCSI host adapters with nonconflicting configurations.

A SCSI interface is one of the best ways to add lots of devices—hard drives, CD-ROM or DVD drives, cartridge or tape drives, even some of the high-end graphics scanners—to your PC without using up a lot of resources. Very fast SCSI adapters and hard drives are used in servers, and most high-capacity server-grade backup tape systems use the SCSI interface because SCSI is simply faster and allows for more drive configurations like RAID.

Because of the performance offered by SCSI host adapters, you should have at least a PCI card. ISA cards are simply incapable of supporting the speeds required by today’s SCSI drives.
