Search NCIX etc. You are looking for a PCI eSATA adapter.

1) turn OFF your PC
2) Install the card
3) turn on the PC
4) Install the correct drivers


*note that some cards are PCI-e not PCI and some have SATA and not eSATA. eSATA has both power AND data on the same cable and is hotswappble (PC need not be turned off before plugging in the hard drive).
