I've been doing as much as I can to get the best bang for the buck in upgrading my computer to run its fastest. Currently I have an Ultra ATA/100 hard drive connected, and want to use a SATA hard drive. The connectors on my motherboard are not compatible with a SATA hard drive and I would like to make it compatable.
I know there are cards you can buy that go into your PCI slots that allow SATA hard drives to be used. Can I combine the use of ATA with SATA without any complications? I would like to keep my old Western Digital as the main hard drive, and use a Western Digital Raptor 10,000 rpm (SATA) as the slave to run my games and simulations on. What suggestions could you make on what the best card, and or solutions would be to allow this to happen.
