Oh, ok.
This one was famous for a while, just hard to find now:
Hope it works for you!

Those are 2 port cards that were linked.

There's a 4 port card (requires a 4x 2.0 slot). But its $180. And an 8 port card, but it was $450.

EDIT:
If you could settle for SATA II (SATA 3GB/s), then there's 4 ports for as low as about $40. Sorry, that's a PCI version (not enough bandwidth).

PCIe, 4 port cards are $55 and up for SATA 3GB/s.

Thanks. Seems like if there are more than 2 ports on the card there are always some externally. Too bad, but I think two internal ports are quite okay, I just would not know what to do with the two ports on the outside.

Thanks, I think 3Gb/s would be fast enough, if I use it just for my larger storage drives with no applications.

Edit:

I've just found out, that the two external ports aren't even SATA ports, they are USB ports.
