I plan on building a system next month (budget) and was contemplating re-using an old ide 250gb seagate drive as the prices are outrageous at the time being. Just wondering if you guys think this is wise or should I just bite the bullet and go for a new sata drive.

the speed will be a little slow on boot and loading but i would clench the wallet and wait it out.

few [ if any] new motherboards have IDE connectors .

You would need a controller card . Is it still a saving?

^Fair enough, I guess I will go ahead with the new drive. I just feel like kicking myself for not picking up a drive when I had the chance.
