Sounds crazy, but I am ordering a new board tonight-going to replace the board in my HP Media Center PC with an MSI board-going to go from an AMD Athlon X 2 6000 to a Phenom II 965 X4
My current board-HP Board-is an Asus a8m2n-la.
The board I am upgrading to is this one
This may sound like a crazy question. I believe my CURRENT board has an IDE connection.
The one optical drive is connected VIA IDE I believe. The other ones are SATA.
However, when I look up my CURRENT board on the net, I do not see anything about an IDE connection.
Am I going crazy? Am I not seeing the specs?
I just want to find out 100% if my current board has an IDE connection so I know I am buying the right board for my upgrade.
The power supply was replaced last year with a 550 Watt from BFG. That should be enough-my current CPU is 125 W and the thermal on the 965 BE is the same.-going to get the 125 W version. Thank you for your help
