    Okay, i am trying to get about 6TBs worth of harddrives to put in an open solaris server. the only problem i am having, is trying to find a suitable motherboard. ideally i would like something like the VIA NAS 7800 but it seems like no one is selling that, so i am looking for something with 8sata ports or a pci express 1x slot for a raid card. my budget is around 1000$ which after buying the HDs at about 100$ each leaves me with 400$. anyone know of something low powered yet with an assload of sata ports or where to get the nas7800?

    MSI has them, I don't use them for anything but for low end stuff. VIA NAS-7800-15LST or similar?
