sorry about the dual post, once I realized that my first post had ended up in the wrong forum again posteed it in the correct one, sorry again.

My computer is a PC,
mobo Asus P4G800-V, i865G chipset,
Northwood P4 2,4 GH,
1GB = 2x512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM,
VGA a small 128 MB Radeon,
Sony 48x CD-RW, LG DVD-RW,
1x40GB HD, 1x200 GB HD both Seagate, 1x40 GB HD 2,5inch external Fujitsu, and 1x80 GB 2,5 inch exter. Samsung

I need a lot of HD space as I use my PC for video editing ( Vegas )
both internal drives are IDE, so for additional I want to go to SATA ( long explanation, but here in Bali I can't get a decent one, so I have to get it later outside where I want to use it/ load data etc. and later bring it back here to install it. )
- that's why it should be a SATA which can be used externally with either a USB or firewire connection.

IDE drives can be used in enclosures. In fact IDE enclosures are common and they support USB2 and Firewire.
