    I know i know, use the via 6421. I have that card.

    However, with windows 7 it just gives me problems. It wont install, ive tried all kinds of approaches, etc.

    What i need is a sata card, that has a chipset that supports SATA II, and has like 4 ports.

    Can anyone reccomend one that has a chipset that is also compatible with flashing 360s? I want to hook some drives up to it, but get that other feature from it as well.

    Just trying to find a cheap work around before i upgrade to a new mobo and cpu in the future ( i7 etc ) that hopefully has a compatible chipset onboard.

    Running out of sata slots ftmfl.

    I might just scrap the idea and keep the paypal cash in my account where it is.
    Im sure the new motherboard i buy for my i7 being 300 bucks probably will take care of any issues i have.

    I just need more sata points. I have 4 500gb hdd's that i could raid for more storage. Not a need, but might be cool.
    Plus this fucking via card wont see my 2nd dvd writer i have plugged into it on windows 7.
