DeviantPC has just posted a review of the Abit IT7-MAX2 combined with Abit's Media XP multi-function 5.25" bay so head on over there to see if this combo has what you need.
Another addition to the IT7-MAX2 is the inclusion of 2 Serial ATA150 ports. Although true SATA drives are very few and far between, only Seagate comes to mind, Abit does supply a single connector to hook a regular parallel ATA drive to a SATA port. Serial ATA is quickly becoming a common inclusion on new boards, Abit as far as I can tell though are the only manufacturer to add Serial ATA RAID to the list of features on the IT7-MAX2. It does allow for future flexibility and means the board will not be out of date in 2003 when serial ATA comes to the fore in the market.More information at DeviantPC
