Read on slashdot it's not supposed to affect ports 0 and 1 (SATA 6Gb/s) but rather only the 3GB/s ports so you should be find as long as you've only got 2 drives and put them on your 6Gb/s ports, hell even if you have a third SATA optical drive or a third HDD for storage I wouldn't be too worried about it.
This recall is pretty much unprecedented though, at least they learnt from the FDIV bug in their P3 chips and are taking preventative measures before SB hits the more mainstream market and it's fully rolled out to a large share of the market. Apparently they're looking at losing $300M worth of sales for this thing to get fixed.
PS: Micron..... I buy whatever is the best in the market at the time. I have no brand loyalty, if the company can deliver the product with good performance at a reasonable price (and in an ethical way) then I'll go with them.
