[SOLVED] I'm looking for a PCIe 3.0 x1 SATA expansion card ?

I would like to connect another sata device to my pc, but have used all available sata connections except the two hidden behind the graphics card. I have an available PCI-E 3.0 x1 slot. I'm looking for an expansion card for this slot with SATA ports.
I'm connecting mechanical hard drives, so any SATA revision should be fine and bandwidth on the PCI-E slot won't be an issue.
I'm purchasing in Australia, so a link to a store here would be preferred. Thanks in advance.
 

You are looking for an HBA SATA card.

For 3.0x1, the best I could find with a quick search is:

I'm a little surprised that companies make SATA cards with up to 8 ports on 2.0x1 but could not be bothered to make the same on 3.0x1 which would be 60% better for aggregate throughput.
Unfortunately shipping to Australia is $41. Looking today I found a PCI-E card locally with two SATA ports, although it doesn't specify PCI-E revision and it is $82.98 plus shipping:

This is a PCI-E x4 card. I only have a PCI-E x1 slot available.
