You could get a 7810 or a 32-bit 6800 (still very good performance).

I would really like to know where people are getting the impression that 
all 3ware cards are being discontinued. The only 3ware card I know of 
that is being discontinued is the full-length 64-bit 7800, to be replaced 
with the half-length 7810.
