Since I got my power supply for my Pmac g4 MDD for free, I have put a 145 gig IDE in it, but since the whole worlds moving to SATA, I feel I should grab a SATA PCI card. I would like bootable from the drives connected to it, but if its prohibitively expensive I don't need the feature. I DO NOT want one with eSATA headers, already got that covered and that will just jack the cost up. I figure (as with all things) I will need a mac complaint model and not one of those 8.95 ones.

Not worth the expense so save your pennies for a newer (Intel hehe) machine. You are going to be stuck with your current system bus speed and either internal and/or eSATA cards are not worth the money. Went this route with a FW800 1.25DP MDD and there was no noticeable speed increase.

No Intel for me, sorry, :p had too many bad experiences, waiting for A-EON to come :p :p

I really need a faster drive controller so, what is a good SATA controller.
