I picked up a HighPoint 2680 as it listed that it had OS X support - turns out that driver support ended with 10.5 - I'm assuming there's no way I can get this card to work in may hack is there? It uses a Marvell 88SE6485 chipset.

 

If that doesn't work, I know the 2721 card will work, but it's a bit more pricy than the 2720 (the PC version) which I would prefer to use. Am I stuck with the 2721 as that's the only card with OS X driver support, or is there a way to change the 2721 driver to work with the 2720?

Provided the two cards are for the most part the same, you could try editing Info.plist of the driver (insert ID of your card).

Those cards couldn't suck any harder if they tried — the driver bundle involves a web service you have to use to configure the hardware RAID features of the card itself. Return it, sell it, set it on fire and get a Caldigit FASTA 6GU3 which works out of the box with OS X without any third party shenanigans.

2720 works OOB as I have this card. 

 

Also High Point has drivers on there site for you card in question that work under 10.8. I did not test them in 10.9.
