I need a decent ESATA port multiplier card. Essentially the one I had been using up until now a (generic sil3132 pcie card) turned out to be the root of a few random intermittent problems I have been having with my computer. I looked further into the issue and found that the chip-set was horribly out of date ie height of the XP era (had actually pulled this card from my XP machine when I build my first windows 7 computer back in 2012). Turns out that this little card was actually slowing the IO speeds of my entire system and causing the intermittent crashes I had thought was the result of a PSU or Main board problem. Problem is these old dated cards are litterally everywhere and I really need some help finding a decent ESATA port multiplier card with a current chip-set that is fully compatible with windows 7 and wont cause the kind of issues I was having with the 3132 card. I am not really well versed in the world of PCIE add on cards so any help will be appreciated.
