PCI IDE card? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Any problem or performance issues using one of these cards with couple of drives?

     

    3 of 4 sata ports and both my primary and secondary IDE channels are full but have 2 more slots in my case for hard drives.  Local Bestbuy has PATA 750 gig HD for sale at $140 and I was really tempted to pick up couple of these with an IDE card and throw them into WHS.  I still have 1.4 gigs out of 3.7 gigs free and was planning to add 2 SATA drives down the line.

  • Well, PCI isn't the fastest connection method, but it's still faster than your network connection, so you shouldn't have too much trouble.
