Thanks Troy. Is the only option is a controller card, even if I have no desire to have RAID (i.e. IDE port to SATA cords don't exist?)

No, there is no other option then using a add on SATA controller. Just a heads up, the PCI bus will saturate at a relatively low bandwidth (127.2MB/s) which could very easily be saturated with two hard drives. Because your audio card will also be on the PCI bus, the hard drive data *may* be put at a priority, thus interfering with the sound card. That being said, the chances of such are very low, but because this build is for audio purposes, it's undesirable, which is why I suggest you stick with a IDE hard drive which is still available at newegg.
