I was wondering if I could get your thoughts…
The Abit NF7-S includes ‘Serillel’ adapters, and you can purchase them and also ‘Serillel 2’ adapters for CDROMS etc. I'd like to know how 2 Maxtor DM+9 PATA Drives on Serillels compare to 2 of the real SATAs (the same line of HDs). If there's no difference then this could be a big money saver. I am considering the 80GB versions.
The ‘serillel’ adapters- more info here:

Serillel 2 - http://www.abit-usa.com/news/2003/20030425b.php
It just seemed to me that if I could use 2x 6Y080P0 drives on those Serillels in a RAID-0 config then this would be almost the same as running 2x 6Y080M0 SATA natives. I guess there might be a small perf. Drop, but I dunno. This Abit NF7-S v2.0 mobo looks sweet, and I’m pretty sure that is what I will use to run all this.
