I would say SAS used to be better than Sata, but with the advent of SSDs and faster SATA drives it may be a moot point.

6 Gb/s Sata outperforms SAS that and not to mention you won't find large capacity SAS drives that the average user can afford.

SAS drives are geared towards the enterprise market.

Good to know. I like the large amount of info one can pick upon OCN.

SAS is not better than SATA. Both have their advantages/disadvantages, but one is not better than the other, it really depends what you're doing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_attached_SCSI#SAS_vs_SATA

Also, I'm not sure if you should go with an adapter to connect the SAS drive to your SATA ports, but rather you may be better off getting a cheap PCI-E controller.

the only board with sas controller is the Bloodrage non GTI, i recommend you get one if you really want to use that drive, a pcie sas controller will cost more than i would pay for a board.

Not true my Asus P6T6 WS Revolution has a onboard sas controller.
