Hi, I have a terrible problem, I am hoping one of you experts can maybe help me with. I am asked to build a new computer with an Asus P8P67 Deluxe motherboard and a Sandy Bridge 2600K processor, the only problem is that the customer wants an IDE controller card for his Optical drives, he is a BenQ nut, and there is no IDE on this ASUS board, in the past I have used the SIIG SCPE4B12S4 PCI IDE Controller Card
It has worked great in the socket 775 with Windows 7 64 bit. Will it work in a PCI slot with this Mobo and CPU? If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.

No reason why it wouldn't work if you have Windows 7 drivers - PCI is PCI regardless of the motherboard it's on.
But seriously, this guy is willing to spend more money on a PCI card just because he wants his optical drives on IDE? Hell, that PCI card probably costs more than a SATA drive!
If he's worried about running out of SATA ports for hard drives, he'll be a lot better off getting a PCI-E SATA card to expand the number of SATA ports, rather than clogging up a shiny Sandy Bridge system with obsolete tech.
