Okay, so my MB has 8, yes 8 SATA plugs. Does this mean I can actually plug 8 drives into it? (Assuming I have a power supply that can handle it and a need for that many drives!) If so, could I use, say, 8 500 gig drives? Also, there is a standard HD type male plug on the MB, what is it for? I was told by a friend that it had something to do with the SATA setup.
IF it is true that I could run 8 drives, how what RAID would you suggest I use? FWIW, I don't know much about RAID either!
Asking more out of curiosity than anything else.
