RAID 5 on the (Gigabyte) motherboard in Ubuntu Server?

I'm putting together a home file server that will run Ubuntu server, and I want RAID 5. It looks like Gigabyte motherboard
does 6xSATA RAID 5. A PCI-e controller would cost much more than this option. Any ideas if A) RAID 5 on the motherboard is useful/viable, and B) if this particular Gigabyte motherboard would work well in Ubuntu (or CentOS)- and if not, any recommendations.
