RAID 1 compatibility with Optiplex 760

Are there compatibility issues installing a RAID controller and setting up two hard drives with RAID 1 on an Optiplex 760?  Anybody tried this?  I'm not sure what the standard motherboard is for this system.  Heres the info:

Re: RAID 1 compatibility with Optiplex 760

There is no native Raid support in the system. If you want to run Raid you will need to use an add in controller card.

Thanks.  That's what I suspected.  I just wondered if anybody had run into compatibility issues installing a controller card.  What should I look for when choosing a controller card?

I purchased a 4 port PCI raid add in card off eBay and it worked fine in my 760.
