The primary one is the port that you can only access from inside the case...It's the port that faces the front of the case mate....

Unless you got a 2 port sata card (no e-sata)

I have heard of alot of issues with the 2 port ones, they say which port is what on the card itself.

As above, 3 port cards, the one that faces the front of the case.
