I'm at that point too... DELL support recommended PERC3/Dc as a megaraid-based substitute für PERC3/Di, the card is around 1000€ for us.
The major problem is that I can't figure out a smart migration path (that is, a better solution than rebuilding a production system with lots of customer websites from scratch). You cannot move disks from one controller type to another.
