Esata pci-e card ...

Hi,

I have and evga 780i and, sorry to look dumb I just look on the package thrid times, I just realized they don't have E-sata port on that mobo. So, If one of you know wich card I should buy I really appreciate. I don't want to do raid or jbod anything else, just to connect my external hard drive.

Or if I don't misunderstand, to connect E-sata bracket, I have one left from my evga 680i, Did I need an esata port on the motherboard or can I connect that on my normal sata port. I have 2 free.

Thanks for your helps

  1. You can use a eSATA bracket to connect to a SATA port on your motherboard.
    You can then connect the eSATA drive, reboot and have your eSATA drive available. Rebooting is not necessary, if the eSATA port supports AHCI.
  2. If you have a eSATA PCIe card, you can insert that in the motherboard, reboot, install additional drivers if necessary and you are ready.
  3. The eSATA bracket is cheaper and just as good as the eSATA PCIe card if you have an available SATA port on the motherboard.
