choise of HDD

Hiya all,

I am in the market for a new HDD for my Debian (Sarge) Desktop. I have
an NForce2 ASUS A7N8X Deluxe 2.0 motherboard with 2 PATA connectors and
2 SATA ones. I guess I prefer SATA because.. well, it's the future :).

Any suggestions? I am looking for something fast, in the range of 80-160
GB, dependant on price. Price should be in range of 80 - 120 euros, in
the Netherlands.

What can you people recommend for Debian? Are there any issues with SATA
on this board? How about the controller? (Silicon Image 3112(A) SATA
chipset)  How about the Debian Installer on SATA? Does the kernel
recognize this controller being a RAID controller? (I think it is?).
Maybe worth buying two HDD's?

Any suggestions more than helpfull! Thanx!
