SATA to IDE

Argh, I stupidly ordered a SATA hard drive when instead I needed an IDE one. What is the best option for converting this, like a small cable, component or something? And will it be cheap?

A SATA controller plugged into a PCI slot would be best for you you could add another later on, though this would be cheapest item for you http://www.ebuyer.com/product/106547

thanks - however i think i should explain the whole story.

i was buying the drive for use with my playstation 2, so i need a quick fix for conversion. unless it would just be easier to buy an IDE HDD instead?

Would have offered to buy it off you but not Maxtor :roll: I would just put it in your desktop computer and buy another IDE.
