SATA + IDE - Explain
I'm in the process of looking for componenets to make a mid-ranged gaming pc, but will be using a combination of my old components and new ones (hard drives).
I definately need a 500GB HD, and am pretty sure that It should be a SATA drive (Samsung SpinPoint F1 500GB SATA-II 16MB Cache is what I'm thinking), but I will also use my old one (a Maxtor 160GB HD - IDE, sorry don't know any more info), and was basicly wondering, would they work fine together? (By the way, the smaller drive will only be used for my OS, program/game files, and the 500GB one will be for all my files, music, video etc...
If you need to know the motherboard they will be connected to, here: Gigabyte GA-MA790X-DS4 AMD 790X (Socket AM2) PCI-Express DDR2.
So knowing this (plus ask if you need any other info), would it be fine, and what would I need to do, possibly in terms of steps, to connect them both to the motherboard, and have them set up correcty (e.g. buying cables).
