    Adding esata and understanding transfer rates

    Joe Riggs Level 1

      I would like to add an esata port however I'm trying to understand  transfer rate vs. hardware bottleneck.  I know esata (v2) is rated at 3  GB/s but if it's put into a pci slot isn't only 133 mb/s? Would the  transfer rate be better to get a bracket that could plug directly into  the sata port on the motherboard?
