Sata and Esata are the same thing with a slightly more robust connector for the external type.
My E-sata enclosure came with a bracket to run the sata signal to my motherboard, for people who do not have Esata. So it really doesn't matter if you have an Esata port or not, as long as you have on-board sata you need only get the pci bracket and plug her in.
These days though, for the price of 2 high performance drives in RAID, you can get a single SSD drive. Although it won't store as much, it will absolutely shatter both benchmarks and real-world performance.
