Default SATA to IDE converter.

right, done a search, but couldn't find anything useful for me, so here goes

basically, being in a hurry in the shop, i mistakenly purchased a SATA 1 HDD instead of a good ol' IDE drive. being a relic, my motherboard doesn't support SATA, so i'm wondering if anyone knows of a nifty little cable or converter that will let me use the SATA drive on my existing motherboard?

i think this is the thing i'f after, but i'm not 100% sure.

clicky

cheers.

That ebay one looks fine. Cant you take it back and explain, SATA is ALOT better, so maybe a motherboard upgrade?
