You would need to use the card. It supports "Port Multiplier," which allows up to five SATA drives to be controlled by one SATA port. An SATA port that does not support Port Multiplier will not be able to see all of the drives.

Keep in mind that you are limited to the speed of one SATA connection shared among all of the drives in that box. And it may be noisy.
