Do not buy SATA on a motherboard. Buy a motherboard and then buy a PCI SATA controller. I suggest Highpoint so you do not have to pull your hair out when upgrading to the latest kernel. Highpoint has open source drivers. If you are going to use RAID, use Linux software RAID instead that comes with Highpoint controllers. IMHO, you are fixed using on-board add-on controllers because only the motherboard manufacture can upgrade the on-board add-on controllers.
