    does the Asus P4PE/GL/F/S-ATA have 2 channels of ATA133/DMA (primary & secondary) or just 1 (40pin connector)?

    from all the documentation i've read, it has not been made clear;
    especially it has the S-ATA controller as well.

    sorry, i need to make sure because i intend to buy HD's at same time as the board.

    many thanx, F.

    Yes, it has two ATA133 connectors, primary and secondary. It also has one RAID controller IDE port and a SATA controller as well. I usually disable those features TBH. It's best to use a PCI card if you were to use that option.

    Any of the newer boards with the 875 chipset will have a better onboard SATA implementation as the chipset itself is better suited for that type of operation.
