Default Need help Regarding PSU

Hi there! Im having trouble understanding how PSU's work...

I have a moderately old motherboard which supports IDE Not SATA.

I cant seem to find a Power Supply that will support IDE, they all Say SATA,Molex,etc.

Is there any way I can go around this or Is there still IDE PSU's out there?

Please dont tell me to upgrade my system, i just need a lil advice, thanks alot

Regards

yeah any PSU you get will have molex's on it, just a question of how many.

i use them for my older DVD drive and my case fans, so lucky to have them really.

Even if you run out of molex connectors, there are SATA to molex adapters out there that are pretty cheap to buy.
