I've heard these are a good value

If you build your own, the 3com controllers can be had under $400 and are
said to be quite good. I'm booting SATA with a $35 addonics controller on
a workstation -- which I consider as reliable, faster and cheaper than
ATA. But that setup wasn't without difficulty setting up.
