Sounds fair... lots less than Sun charges for their LVD cards. 

You may as well get Ultra 160 though. Ace Electronics/LSILogic has the
ITI6200U3LP-S dual U160 card for $489. ITI-6100U2-VS single-channel U80
controller is $280.  

Go to http://www.lsilogic.com/buyonline.html and look there.

I've used the LSI (formerly Intraserver) cards in the OEM U60/220 boards
with great success. We paid $700 or so for the 6101U2-SK 2 years ago.

You can stick in a PC card but unless it has SPARC Solaris drivers it'll
just sit there.
