    Weird. The Tiger detail spec's don't mention SATA support but what should be the same board on other sites do support SATA.

    The board description does say SATA though and the picture shows 2 SATA headers.

    It's probably an oversight in the Tiger advertisement.

    So, it does also support SATA (Serial ATA)?

    Its as clear as day there is 4 serial ata headers on that board


    Serial ATA RAID Support
    The A8N 32-SLI-Deluxe supports the Serial ATA technology through the Serial ATA interfaces. The SATA specification allows for thinner, more flexible cables with lower pin count, reduced voltage requirement, and up to 300 MB/s data transfer rate.


    I have the A8N-E and I have 4 SATA headers and that one I was going to get but why would I want SLI its hype thats all I mean my 7800GTX out performs 2 x 6800 ultra SLI so whats the point?




    NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 Southbridge supports
    - 2 x Ultra DMA 133 / 100 / 66 / 33
    - 4 x Serial ATA 3 Gb/s
    - NV RAID: RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5 and JBOD on Serial ATA drives Silicon Image 3132 SATA controller supports
    - 1 x Internal Serial ATA 3 Gb/s hard disk
    - 1 x External Serial ATA hard disk (SATA On-the-Go)
    - Support RAID 0, 1
