Not sure if that is your question, but you can get SATA cables with stock
(internal) SATA connector on one side and eSATA connector on the other.
You might need to remove a slot cover to run the cable out, but otherwise
no big deal.

The cables are pretty cheap too (as there is no electronics included).
