SATA splitter?

Hi guys,
I recently bought an ATI 6950 graphics card and fitted it onto my motherboard. It is a very wide card, and covers 3 of the 6 SATA ports I have available. My question is, is it possible for me to get a SATA splitter and have 2 hard drives connected to 1 SATA port much like a USB hub allows multiple devices to connect via 1 USB port, or is it strictly 1 device per SATA port?
Thanks :)

  1. 1 sata device per port.

    you can get something like this.

    Plug your boot drive into the mother board and everything else into a card. You might want to look for a sata 6gb 4 port card, but that will run around $50.
  2. I don't have any accessible PCI slots, but that's answered my question. Thanks for the quick reply. :)
  3. Any pci-e x 1? They have sata cards in PCI-e format as well.

    You can do a usb sata adapter. That will work ok for cd drive or even a storage HD. But those devices will run slower.
