Post nGear 4 Port SATA PCI-E1

Hi ! I was looking for a pci-e eSATA controller card, and I fell on this one
Now I can't find anything about OS compatibility, and before buying, I would like to know if anybody knows if that thing is Vista home premium 64-bit compatible !?

Thanks in advance !

Hi, this nGear card is probably the same as the Sabrent version

If you read the comments, these cards use SiliconImage chipsets, which you can download the 64bit drivers from Silicon Image.

I have an earlier model from Sabrent (PCIe 1eSata 1SATA) and I had to go to SI to grab Vista64 drivers for it too, since the mini-cd it came with had outdated x64 drivers that just didn't seem to work.
