That board has the most Sata ports of any board I have seen (8). Most have 4, a few have 6, but the 8 on that board is really impressive. Unfortunately that board doesnt have firewire, which I do use, but the 8 sata ports are awesome.

Well crap this is just another hard decision in the 100 line of hard decisions I have to make. Do I go with the SATA DVD drive thats only 3 bucks more, but has gotten horrible reviews although its supposidly better? Anyone find a link for the Sony NEC Optiarc DVD burner drive thats SATA and OEM?

well its up to you. obvoiusly theres not going to be any performace difference. i myself like sata better because ide is anoying to get around when you have rounded cables. and if they are not rounded then u have big airflow problems. so i would like sata better.then other thing u could consider is the amount of sata power cables u have with ur psu. if u already have a spare molex lying around in ur case then an ide would take it up while with a sata i need sata power cord. but asuming ur gonna have sata HD there should be no prob with the power.

correct, sata wires create better airflow in the case, which is why ppl are into SATA for everything

yes.. there is no performance increase at all. a ide seagate 7200rpm will have same stats as a sata seagate 7200rpm
