If you need exactly SATA, not SAS 6g controller, then choice is not so 
big: either something integrated into latest Intel (only two ports) or 
AMD (6 ports) chipset, or something based on Marvell 88SE91xx chips. 
Last case also has only 2 ports, but you may install two cards, or use 
Highpoint RocketRAID 640, which is just two above chips connected with 
PCIe bridge.
