Windows 7: PCI Express Esata Bracket or Direct Bracket?

PCI Express Esata Bracket or Direct Bracket?

Can someone assist me in finding out which option is best?

Should I use this Amazon.com: Monoprice 107637 1 Port Internal SATA to eSATA Bracket (107637): Computers & Accessories

or something like this: PCI Express SATA III Card - PCIe SATA 6Gbps | StarTech.com

Will the latter perform as fast as the former? (Or will the former even work given the lengths of the cables I have to use?)

Also, I'm getting really confused when it comes to the maximum length of the sata to esata. The esata bracket comes with a 20 inch cable... and the esata cable that comes with my external drive is about 20 inches. That makes an even 40 inches. I know the maximum sata length is 40 inches... and I don't want this 40 inch chain causing corruption.....

What should I do?

***I also want to make sure using the pci express port isn't going to cause any issues with the graphics card... and I really want to make sure I'm using the fastest method possible

bump. Right now, I'm averaging 110mb-150mb a second with this bad boy Amazon.com: Mediasonic ProBox HF2-SU3S2 4 Bay 3.5" Hard Drive Enclosure - USB 3.0 & eSATA, Support SATA 3 6.0Gbps hard drive transfer rate: Electronics (WD Caviar Black).
Through using a usb 3.1 port on my mobo.

Would sata be that much better?

Are you sure?

I'm pretty sure I didn't ask this same question. I looked through all of my threads.

There must be something you're seeing that I'm not because "Is there a such thing as official Sata 3 PCI Brackets" doesn't really have anything to do with what I'm asking now, specifically.

Seriously. Am I not seeing something?

If I thought my question was addressed, I wouldn't be opening another thread. Just trying to get an innocent answer lol...

I will try to explain.

One computer, one problem, one thread.

Your threads are basically the same.
With a little change but the same.

What this causes is confusion for members trying to help.
