I'll refer you to MATLAB Hardware Resources page ( so you can decide among those options what hardware will best do what you want. MATLAB supports all of them, and there appears to be a community of users (as well as MATLAB Tech Support and the hardware manufacturers) who can help you if you have problems.

It will likely _not_ be less expensive in either time or money to build your own hardware interface card from components and then make it work with your motors.
