alright i went to the manufactures site and this is what it will support.
An IDE controller on the NVIDIA nForce4 SLI chipset provides IDE HDD/CD-ROM with PIO,
Bus Master and Ultra DMA133/100/66 operation modes.
- Can connect up to 4 IDE devices
so that means i have 4 IDE/ IDE Ultra133/100/66 drives?
and NV RAID supports 4 SATA II ports(SATA 1 to 4). Transfer rate is up to 300MB/s.
¬ē Silicon Image's SATA RAID supports another 2 SATA II ports. (SATA 5 and 6)
- Transfer rate is up to 300MB/s.
sooo that means i have 4 SATA II or SATA 3gb/s ports and another 2 for RAID?
also which of these is fastest?
last question, hard drives come in all of those connections, what do optical drives come in?
