The most I've seen is 6+esata although you might want to check out server boards. You could always just get a PCI card for the extra sata ports.

better to get a PCI-E controller card to avoid PCI bus saturation.

abit's IP35 Pro seems to be 1 of the best for playing nice with addon controller cards & it has 6 internal SATA plus 2 eSATA.

I have an ABIT AB9 Pro. This one has 9 SATA and 1 eSATA. Owned this board about a year. Working great...
