Some advice on buying used SAS drives for storage

Hi!

I'd like to first state that I understand buying a used drive might not be the most ideal solution but I don't really want to spend a lot on mass storage and the things I'll be storing aren't important if I end up losing them. Also, just thought it'd be fun to try out. That being said, I see a lot of used SAS drives on sale for a pretty good price, some reach close to $10/tb. I just want to know if purchasing a SAS controller card for my pc is a good idea/compatible with windows 10?

You must ask yourself if you really need a SAS drives. Also there are tons of controllers depends on what your requirements are but look at the LSI Broadcom SAS 9300-8i for a generic good controller with good OS support.
