    Hi,

    probably a silly question but...

    I have 2 hdd one is IDE and the other is currently usb 2.0/ide also my dvdrw is IDE.

    I'm looking to buy a new motherboard for a core2duo after the july price cuts but nearly all that I have seen only use sata.

    Anyway I was wondering if there is any conversion part I could so I could still use these as the extra expense isn't is my current budget/limit.

    Thanks.

    Many new mobo still support IDE devices. Some of them offer one IDE channel, instead of the normal two, for running two IDE devices or master and slave.
