PCI Express Sata Raid Controller

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am looking to add 2 additional hard drives for storage but I have used up all of the current Sata ports on my mobo. Can anyone suggest a controller card for either PCI express 1x or PCI that will support at least 2 SataII ports. I have been looking but haven't found any good reviews on anything yet. Thanks in advance.

nothing too expensive...maybe 100-150 max. The hard drives are only being used for storage of movies and music etc.
