I have an older Socket A system that is gonna be used for a Video Surveillance System but the hard drive need to go up in size. The board has no SATA ports to run a SATA hard drive so I need some help on getting the right SATA/Raid controller card so I can put an OS on the Hard drive. I need the card threw a PCI Setup. So what kind of card due I need to due that. Any and all info will be helpfull. Thanks.

Not sure what other features you need if any. I would go for a Silicon Image chipset myself. I used to run a SATA raid card on an old box with a P4 530 in it right when LGA775 came out.
