I have a Seagate ST373207LW SCSI hard drive. Can I somehow use it on an "ordinary" motherboard which only has IDE conectors?

Hi, it is possible to get PCI SCSI/IDE Adapter cards, but very expensive.

Thanks. How much is "very expensive"?

Any sites I can look at for suggestions?

or you could get a SCSI to USB adapter, still quite expensive.

Anything from £30 to £100, estimate only!

Even on eBay a suitable card costs £59.00 including postage click here and then you'll need a scsi ribbon cable if you don't already have one.
You can buy a much larger brand new IDE drive for less than that click here or even an external IDE/USB 2.0 drive click here.
