Hi there, I have a SATA compatible motherboard and the next hard drive i get will be SATA. I just wanted to know if the SATA hdd uses the same molex connector as an ATA hdd. If not, then will I need to get a new PSU? Thanks.
Yes and No, some HDs have the same molex w/ SATA power connector some only come with the SATA power connector only. When you purchase your motherboard it should comes with SATA power connector with female molex connection. You do not need a new power supply that's for sure.
