My System Specs

Default PCI-E sata expansion card

I'm looking for an expansion card that will add 4 or preferably 6 sata 2 ports. it does not need to be fast, or be a raid card. I just need more sata plugs for my storage drives.
the reason I avoid the RAID cards is that they coast a lot more than just a sata card. but the largest sata card I could find was 2 ports and I don't want to have to use 2-3 slots just to add a couple hard drives.

This one is quite popular about $100, up to 8 sata drives. Keep in mind it doest come with cables and you'll need 2 sets, and for whatever reason they are $15-30 each depending on quality.
