The manual for my P6DBE (and all the other models in that series) says it needs
an ATX 2.01 PSU.
3.) "SLI" . . . ? clueless

No. That's a newer form of PCI mainly intended for video cards. You'll need a
motherboard that's less than a year old to have this capability.
5.) SATA capable?
Not natively. If you have a spare PCI slot then you could add a SATA controller
Currently I have only ATA and SCSI HDD's; but I'd like these power
supplies to be SATA-capable for future expansion purposes.
A few of your local currency units will get you a Y shaped cable with a 4 pin
socket on one end and a pair of SATA power connectors on the other. Much cheaper
than a new PSU.
