HELLO PC HIVEMIND -- hopefully this is a simple question.
I have an external hard drive with an eSATA connector. I recently replaced my PC with a setup based on a M4A88T-M motherboard. Problem: the new motherboard doesn't have an eSATA connector in back for me to plug stuff into.
It does, however, have a whole set of extra SATA connectors on the motherboard itself.
How should I handle this? Should I...
1. Buy a PCI-based eSATA card? or
2. Buy a SATA to eSATA plate bracket, and hook that into the motherboard's SATA connections?
Really, I just want the easiest & cheapest thing that lets me hook my external hard drive up to my PC.
