I'm looking at installing a PCI SATA controller. I'll be removing my existing ATA harddrives but I'll still have to plug in 2 DVD players. Do I have to worry about finding a controller that includes conventional ATA channels or will I be able to continue using one of the ATA channel off the mother board?

Your ide controllers should function the same.
Just make sure the sata controller has its on bios and is bootable if you plan on running your OS from it.
