    If the computer is in warranty, then by all means, have Apple fix it. If not, you might consider a PCI-X SATA controller, which has got to be much less than a full system board replacement. Or move your drives to an external FW-800 enclosure and work of FW. Not an ideal solution, but at least it gets you going until you can get it fixed.

    PCI-X or surely PCI-E?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    You're right, PCI-E. Check out Mac Pro: About the PCI Express slots to determine the appropriate speed of your system. However the only card I'm seeing is about $170 from Sonnet. Someone else might have another recommendation.

    And they are only moderate performers. Take it back to the Apple store for best results.
