Does anyone know any safe websites online where I can purchase any motherboard with at least 8 Sata ports? Thanks in advance.

I've never had a problem there, back to 2004.

Ditto. Been buying from Tiger for over 5 years with no issues. Stuff often arrives the next day.

That is a desktop Board only has 6 SATA Ports on it. I have not seen any with 8 short of a Multi Processor Xeon Server Board and even then it was a special order.

So first you'll need to find a suitable M'Board and then look around at the locations listed in the above posts to find out if they will order one in for you.

Don't count as far as I'm concerned. I was thinking here that the OP wanted 8 Internal SATA Ports for up to 8 Drives.

Besides i5 CPU are a bit of a lost cause if you ask me I would only be looking at the i7 Units when moving to that level of performance. The Tri Chanel RAM at those speeds is expensive and the difference in price between a i5 & a i7 isn't that much.

Although this M'Board looked interesting when I had a look. :0

I might have to get one to see how well it works. :^0
