Windows 7: Internal Controller

Internal Controller

I'm looking for an 4 port internal controller for ~ $50 or less, that permits non-RAID hard and optical drives to function and be bootable, plus would pass SMART data to diagnostics. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

EDIT: Also, I wouldn't mind finding a 2 port external card with the same qualities.

No reply...does that mean that no one uses a controller card, or that what I want doesn't exist?

Okay, if no answer for the first questions, maybe someone can answer this one. I have found some Highpoint controllers that says that they have a port multiplier that permits it to control 10-20 hard drives. Since these are SATA controllers, and every SATA data cable that I know of is only for a single drive, how would one connect more than 4 drives to a controller that has 4 ports?
