im not really looking to hook it in raid mode, i just need a pata/ide expansion card because there are only 2 device max on new motherboards, and i have a bunch of old ide drives that i would like to make use of, but im also gonna get a sata hd and dvd player to run as a main, just need an expansion drive to use the others as backups, any suggestions

If you're not interested in Raid then I'd suggest the Adaptec 1200A (I'd double check at home if this was the exact model). I believe I bought it at CompUSA (I think). It was less than $100 (or was it $50) and works just as fast as the onboard ATA controller on my board.

However if you really want to do a pata raid the lowest priced card that I could see is the Adaptec 1891300 Ata Raid 2400A at around $70.

Sorry bout not helping you find the exact store, just too lazy right now.
