Default mixing IDE and SATA HDDs

I don't think there will be a problem but is it OK having both an IDE HDD and a SATA one?

Also, is this a good secondary HDD?

man these peas ROCK!

It is OK to have both IDE & SATA hard drivesn on the same system . I have two of both on my set-up. (SATAs in RAID 0 and the IDEs for some storage.)

As for the "secondary HDD" , it looks fine.
