Add'l IDE Port

Just wondering if there's already an add-in card for additional IDE Ports for installing more than 4 IDE devices (3 HDD, 1 DVD-ROM, and 1 CD-Writer).

There are a few different brands/models of add in IDE controllers. Just look on Google or any shopping site and you will find a range of choices.

Yes, there are such cards but I suggest you buy one you can refund with if it causes problems or difficult. I suggest an Adaptec or same brand as one of the HDs(if available). On top of all that, it maybe just as good for the cost to get another very large gb HD due to cost. Remember with that many HD and CD drives you're stressing the power supply regardless of gb size.

good luck -----Willy Happy
