So I am getting real near to adding a couple more hard drives to my desktop and I am running out of sata ports to plug into and was hoping someone can offer a little advice or opinions about some products. My desktop is a little bit of everything. I use it mainly as a server. I host all my media content that serves two TVS in my apartment, I also use it as a Web, Database server, a little gaming here and there and lastly I do a little bit of programming. 1) SATA Controller Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16816124064 A) Any speed penalty if I go with a PCI-E Controller card? Is there any cons at all going this route? C) Anything more reliable or better then this? D) What if I have multiple Controller cards? 2) More Power Connectors - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812400127&Tpk=PYO4SATA A) Any drawback having multiple drives on a strand?
