Closed Best way to solve IDE/SATA problem Tags: SATA Hard Drives Motherboards Components Product Last response: January 31, 2011 6:14 AM in Components Share zavulon January 30, 2011 8:04:22 PM I have an IDE motherboard MSI 890GXM-G65 RT, and SATA hard drive WD1002FAEX and Blu-Ray drive. From what I understand, my options are: 1) Get an IDE-to-SATA converter for the MB 2) Get IDE hard drive and BD-Rom 3) Get SATA-to-IDE converters for HD and BD-Rom My concern is with performance - one reason I got this specific mobo and HD is because of 6.0Gb/s transfer speed. Is that going to be affected with converters? So - what do you think is my best option?
