Dell T1650 mobo have SAS support?

I have an SAS drive and I'm looking for a motherboard that supports it (building a cheapy gaming rig). I would like lga 1155. Does the Dell T1650 support SAS? I can buy the adapter to go from SAS HDD TO SATA connection. I know it needs to have the SAS controller though.

Will this work with this mobo? I can't find anything online.

This site says it does https://www.aventissystems.com/Dell-Precision-T1650-s/12531.htm

but Dell's site doesn't mention SAS at all http://i.dell.com/sites/doccontent/shared-content/data-sheets/en/Documents/Dell_Precision_T1650_Spec_Sheet.pdf at all

  1. Nothing I've found says it does either without the addition of a sas controller.

    I did some digging and checked the pdf for answers. http://en.community.dell.com/cfs-file/__key/telligent-evolution-components-attachments/13-4409-00-00-20-20-25-73/PrecisionT1650_5F00_SellingGuide_5F00_ENG.pdf

    Looks like it might support it. At the bottom under "Accessorize It" it shows "SAS hard drive
    Store your data in a fast,
    more secure SAS hard drive"

    So I'm assuming it has a controller. Thanks for your help, though. Appreciate the time.

    I would call to verify since Sas controllers are typically not cheap.
