Recommend 16 port SAS/SATA PCIe card for JBOD

Servers - www.overclock.net
I'm going to be building a Media Server shortly running Windows Storage Spaces. I have 18 Hotswap HDD bays that I can use in it. I'll be using a spare Haswell i5 4570S (65W) on a mITX H87i MSI Mobo with 8gb DDR3. Just need to pick up a PSU and a CPU Heatsink.

Whats the cheapest PCIe SAS/SATA card with 16 Ports for use with Storage Spaces. I understand it'll be a card with 4 SAS ports each with a SAS to 4 Sata cable and I'll also need Sata couplers to connect those to my Hotswap bay cables.

If we're taking in the $300 range then I think I'll just settle for an 8 port card and make do with 9 of my hotswap bays. '); }
