I need to buy a PCIe to SATA Card. My Mother board only has 4 SATA ports. I have 2 internal HDD's, and a SATA DVD so that only leaves 1 open SATA slot. I have 2X2.5 HDDs and 2 X SSD drives I would like to use in a 4X 2.5 Hot~Swapable HDD bay but only 1 spare SATA port available. Motherboard is only SATA II but i will eventually upgrade the Old Gigabyte GA MA 790XDS4. Any suggestions on what Card I should get? Would like to stay in the $50 range but if best don't mind spending $100 ish NIC is not necessary but I wouldn't be opposed to having a 4 port NIC to eventually set the 4 Bay HotSwaper up with a raid Config. I have never configured a Raid set up. My current PC will most likely be converted to a File server running windows server when I get my new PC in June or July.
