I am interested in the sio2pc but I came across this item: MAX3232 RS232 Serial Port To TTL Converter, I know most sio2pc devices use the max232 so my question is this: could this device be used with the Atari instead of the sio2pc?

Your question is not too clear to me. Perhaps you are referring to the AtariMax serial port (SIO2PC) interface? If you have a PC with a serial port and have the necessary electronic and soldering skills to make your own, yes. You might want to read up on this before you decide. IF you decide to "roll your own" you might want to consider using the 14C89 instead of Max232. It is a much simpler build and instructions abound. But that said, a professionally built solution is probably going to make you happier in the long run.
