So I'm helping my friend replace his mobo with an AM2 and the new board only has 1 IDE slot. His old hd isn't sata so there arent enough slots for the disc drives and the hard drive. He kind of needs a new hard drive anyways but would rather not spend the money...plus I'm not sure if his psu has any sata power connectors. Anyone have a solution? I saw they make adapters for IDE to sata. Would this be the cheap solution?

well if he kept the IDE hd he wouldnt need the molex adapter...and just get an IDE to SATA adapter...that will probably be his cheapest solution I'm thinking
