PCI Sata controller
Im buying a new sata hard disk, a WD raptor and there are no avalable sata ports on my motherboard. So im thinking of using a sata pci controller, but im wondering if attaching the hard disk to the pci card will lower trasfer rates compared to the sata ports on the motherboard?
My motherboard manual says this about the pci slots:
"32-bit Master 3.3v / 5v PCI Bus slots"
Can anyone advise me about this?
