Right i have a pentium 2 old crap computer.
I want to completey build myself a new one, with all new parts apart frm the hard drives and the modem.

i want to get a pentium 4. my cd drives and Hard drives are all connected via the two IDE ports.

Since i been looking for a new mobo to fit my new p4 processor i noticed that most new mobos are SATA rather than IDE. is there any way i can connect my two IDE hard drives and two IDE cd drives to a new mobo with SATA connections on it?
as is there convertor cables etc?

hi GF ...
you will find that even the newest boards still have ide connectors,it is not something that will be taken off for a good while yet .
so get the one with the best specs that you can afford ....

Most of the motherboard still support both S-ATA and IDE drives, an example: click here
