Is there any problem with running a sata drive from a pci express x1 card?

If it is slower what about non sataII drives? can the port handle regular sata well and will a card in the x1 port slow my graphics card down?

In theory... no there's no problem, but why are you asking? Motherboards now come with more than enouh SATA ports.... unless you already have a lot of SATA drives. And yes it will slow your video down a little bit.... but not by much.
