My System Specs

Default Affordable/Good quality PCI-X SATA card

I dont need a raid card. I just need to add a couple of SATA ports (min 4) for my WHS v.1. Using a 7xx AMD chipset. Not looking to spend more than $100 w/ taxes if i dont need to.

Im looking at the following:

Newegg.ca - SYBA SY-PCI40037 SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Port Multiplier PCI Mounting Card

Syba SY-PEX40008 4 Channel SATA II Controller Card PCI-E 1x - Syba - SY-PEX40008

Syba SY-PEX40016 PCI-E SATA & eSATA Controller Card 5X SATA & 1X eSATA W/ RAID 0/1/0+1/5 Software - Syba - SY-PEX40016

And this is a bit high for my price range:

Adaptec 1430SA 4 Port SATA II RAID 0/1/10/JBOD Low Profile Controller Card PCI-E4 RoHS - Adaptec - 2240900-R

You guys have any suggestions?
