    Default IDE Issue

    I have 2 Cd-roms, 2 ide hard drives and 1 ide zip drive. Like any mobo i have 4 ide connectors. Is my best option to get a ide to sata convertor or could I get an IDE card for the pci slot. My questioning about that is would the IDE card allow me to have a fifth device. If you have input post here or shoot me an email at skampy@mcihispeed.net

    Default Re: IDE Issue

    a typical IDE PCI card will allow you to add 4 more devices (2 channels, 2 devives per channel) so it just depends on what you want.

    If you already have on-board sata you could get sata:ide converters for your hard drives, but it wouldn't add much (if any) performance to your pata ide drives. It wouldn't cost much more to just get the PCI card.
