Help needed in understanding eSATA

Specs: Windows XP
I'm looking at building a computer at the moment and the case I've picked out has an eSATA port on it. I'm just wondering what requirements my motherboard will need to support this.

How will the eSATA port on my case be connected to my motherboard? Is it just a standard SATA cable and port or is there something specific required?

Do you already have the case? Did you look inside? The case front panel ports are pre-wired, the plugs are already in place. The cable from the eSATA port connects to one of the SATA ports on the motherboard. Obviously useless unless you have an external SATA device.

Don't have the case yet, hence my question. That answers it though. Thanks for the help.

It would have helped to post the make/model of the case. Or you could have gone to the case manufacturer's website & downloaded the manual.
