I am looking at a number of P45 boards from ASUS for a new box. It appears none of them offers eSATA by default. Do you think I can buy a off-the-shelf card to turn one or two internal SATA into eSATA?

thanks in advance.

Yes
Either by bracket or add in controller.
Always buy something other than Asus. If your Asus brakes, so does their service.
I like both the DFI and Abit boards that I have. The Abit I bought was after Asus RMA sent me a replacement board with caps that were bulged and leaking. Not that's great QA/TQL.
