Can you easily get controllers for PCI, Sun and PC machines?  Are they

Right now I know my old Sun SS5 is living on borrowed time.

I would like to upgrade, but the price of SCSI drives is the biggest worry, as
the drives I want will cost more than the machine.

I've been looking at FC drives, but haven't really found good deals on the
controllers, and don't really know which one are the good ones.
