A while back I bought a SiI3112 PCI SATA card and hooked four 300gig
hard drives to it - worked fine. Later on, my roommate bought some
400gig hard drives, and we had major trouble with them - the drives
would appear locked up a few gigs into a big file transfer. We ended
up using them in a windows box, where they worked fine.

Now I'm in the market for a brand new computer, that I'd like to throw
some 500gig sata drives in. Has anyone had any experience using
really big drives like that with onboard sata controllers? If so,
what brand/chipset drive/motherboards are you using? (feel free to
reply privately if you think this will degenerate into advertisements)
