I believe the $10-$25 range is fine , but that is all newegg's SATA cards; I think we should let him choose.
^ I wasn't criticizing, in fact it just was funnier than hell when I imagined a $80 mATX with a $1,500 RAID card 1/2 it size + needing support to carry it.
There was actually an empty port hiding behind one on the edge. When I really started looking hard, I pulled the cable out of the one on the edge and there was an empty port behind it so I plugged in my HD and away I went. I bought a Hitachi 2TB and it was DOA, what a bummer, but I returned it and I'm waiting for a replacement.
