Hello
I need advice on buying the right PCI IDE Controller.
One of my motherboards IDE slots has failed. The board is a PcChips M848ALU SKT A SIS 748 400 DDR AGPx8 ATA133 .I bought it from ebuyer. im' looking to pay Around £15. I have seen some on ebuyer for under this price. but i dont have a clue to which one i need.
At the moment i have the HDD&CDROM on the one cable.

Thanks

the cheap ebuyer branded one should be fine. ebuyer down, cannot find the link now.

but maybe better off with a new motherboard

The Innovision one cited above is excellent - I've installed it in several Pcs and installation couldn't be simpler.Plug it into a spare PCI slot,start PC,new hardware wizard gets driver from supplied CD and Bob's your uncle.It also comes with an IDE ribbon in the box.

I use a Promise TX2 IDE controller - it also worked simply and straight out of the box. Fast too! Newer model is probably even better (mine is 2.5 years old)
