Default HDD Problem

Right first just a lil background summary....skip if you want

had an external HDD 400GB...power cable/power system broke....manufacturer went bust can't find replacement adapter...so i took the external Case /power supply off and now i'm left with just the HDD.....right well it turns out it's a lot better drive than i have in my computer at the moment....so i'm gonna put it in my computer...i have a slight poblem which i need to fix...
now to the problem

right well i have a HDD which is PATA and only have 1 Available SATA port free on the motherboard...i have 3 IDE ports but each of them are either being used or are too short to reach the only place i have enough room to fit the HDD....i know you can get PATA to SATA adapters and vice versa but which one to get i'm not sure...so what you people think...
