Understanding the warning, still have a question as I want to use old optical and hd on my build and upgrade as need requires (ex. when old drive dies, will upgrade to a new SATA drive-for now use the old one).
The 965 boards I am seeing say they have one IDE Port that supports two devices. I presume that means only ONE IDE cable can be connected, but it can support say two optical drives hooked to that one IDE cable? (Not TWO IDE cables???)
Also, does anyone have any experience with an IDE PCI Controller Card used to add more IDE capacity to the mobo? For instance: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815124001
