    I know SATA only allows one device per cable, but how many SATA devices
    can be supported by a motherboard? Is it limited?

    Paddle

    Depends entirely on the motherboard, ie 0, 2, 4 .....
    Mostly 2 or 4 SATA sockets on motherboards is the current convention.
    However you may add PCI cards with extra SATA sockets if you need (and your
    Power Supply can cope)

    Cheers
