Hard drive choice

OK, my fancy new MB has arrived, a Gigabyte GA-7VT600.  Oooooohh!
Now I need some drives.  My old drives were SCSI but the list has 
convinced me that trying to use my old SCSI drives and controller might 
be a waste of time, but I'd like to have some very reliable hard drives 
and maybe be able to use device names like my SCSI drives (sda, sdb, 
etc.) and be able to use several drives.  So are SATA drives what I 
should use?  I like Seagate drives because they have been reliable in 
the past and they have been very good about warranty replacements.
Any suggestions so I can go down to Fry's and blow off half the afternoon?
