Yeap! i ordered some adapters for my other newly built PC... it's an MSI mobo - i know, not the best, but after some serious tweaking, it's getting better. had to order several splitters: sata to molex, split molex, didn't know which i'd need for the adapter card i'm using in that situation. Wish i'd read this sooner - been perplexed over these PCs... Asus doing GREAT with Windows 7 x64 Pro - another forum to get in on. Thanx again.
