Question about Computers & Internet
Hello all. I have 845G motherboard [P4 2.4 Ghz] and I need to add a new SATA
harddisk [Seagate 250 GB Baracuda with 3.0Gb/s
interface], I belive which makes this HD as SATA II. So for this
MB should I prefer PCI cards which support SATA II over the
supports SATA I [these are cheaper]. Also any more info on choosing a PCI card would be helpful.
There are many PCI SATA controller cards out there. Just know that the SATA will not run at the SATA II standard. This is because you're motherboard may not support the bus speed for the SATA II or SATA I. If you current motherboard does not have a SATA port built on it, than your not going to see the speed the drive is able to run. Click this link (a Google search for PCI SATA II controller cards). http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=PCI+SATA+II+controller+cards&btnG=Search
Watch out for PCI-X. This is not the same as a PCI slot.
PCI-X slots are only found on motherboards that have SATA I & SATA II slots on them. These PCI-X slots are the smaller SATA slots found inbetween PCI-Express sloted boards.
Promise controller cards make some of the best controller cards on the market.
