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....
