  1. You'll have to buy a PATA drive that's it, even if you could buy and adapter there'd be no performance improvement as it'd be painfully bottlenecked by the PATA interface.

    Cheers just saved my a few quid !! :bounce:
  3. Buy either an adapter based on a Marvell chipset, or a PCI or PCI-e SATA controller card based on a Silicon Image chipset. The former is easier for Windows XP because no driver has to be installed.
