Default Building High Level PC

Ok I'm starting to build a top PC and I will have the specs of what I'm looking at within the next couple of days. But for now I have a question about Hard Drives.

I'm looking at the Intel D975XBX Motherboard but it only has SATA/RAID connections. I have a 250 GB IDE connection hard drive. Can I connect this to an ATA?

OK thanks. I wasn't sure if an IDE header was an actual connection. Here is the site with the board:
