for raid or just dvd drives?

Don't you have any available pci-e slots?

It's for an extra hard drive. My video card is very close to the sata ports. Pci-e slots yes a 1x.

My video card is very close to the sata ports.

Would a low profile right angled sata lead help?

Is this just a normal one they've wrapped round a pencil?

I would just read a lot of customer reviews then decide,
Unless somebody here has tried about 50 different cards its hard to say which are the duds (unless you spend a lot on it)

Thank you for that link. I didn't know the was a left angle sata plug. That should solve my problem.

I'm not sure if they do both but on my motherboard I'd need ones that go up and down if you see what I mean...

Look at the plug itself. It does plug in the same way.
