    Ok i have a M2N32-SLI Delux motherboard from ASUS and it has built in SATA ports but theyr SIL ( silicone image ) and i know they wont work with my 78FK drive. Ive been looking for days and have gone to many computer stores ( like over 10 ) and they all only have the silicon image sata cards.. or nothing. Ive read so many forums and NOONE says specifically what kind of Sata card(s) you can use for this drive. (maybe one person mentioned it) so what cards are best to use for this drive??? I also know VIA ones have some problems too . What do i use!?

    VIA 6421L or A it does not matter, all drives are compatible with this pci sata card. just go on ebay, there dirt cheap, i know you may have to wait a couple days for it, but they are the best.
