Quick Question my Mobo only has 4 Sata connections all used by 2 1t and 2t drives. My mobo is an old K8n Neo2 and I need a PCI (Not PCI X) card.

Any Suggestions or recommendations?

Thank you since i have 2 more WD Green 2t drives just sitting here.

Just a nit-pick: PCI-X is different than PCI-E, which is the proper abbreviation for PCI Express.

Regarding what controller card, I just bought a cheap one on Newegg that said it had win2k3 drivers. It worked fine. One thing to be careful of: once you get to 4+ drives, make sure that you have a power supply that is big enough to handle the startup power. Other that, you can try to get a controller card that supports delayed startup.
