The decision on the SATA chipset has been made already. Besides, looking at the price of that UHC chip, I doubt that you can compete with the one I've chosen. Remember that I'll have to spend big time on a CPLD to make a fast 32-bit access, so every cent I can save on the rest of the hardware is extremely valuable.
Too late for the decision, and too early to discuss any details. Let's focus on what's ahead.
