Define "pretty cheap".  I bought two 80GB SATA disks and a PCI SATA
controller a few months back, for about the cost of buying the smallest
non-refurbished replacement SCSI disk I could find.  (I will not buy
refurbed disks.  They've already failed *at least* once.)

Of course, subsequently I discovered that no power on earth will induce
the machine I bought them for to boot off the PCI SATA controller....
