One hard drive will be SATA and the one is an older hard drive, what is a good 500-600 Watt power supply under $100 that doesnt make a lot of noise, will support both types of hard drives and has long enough cables to work in a mid to big tower like this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811129154

Is the Seasonic S12 SS-650HT a Good choice? Does that have a IDE + SATA connection? How about PCI connections? I know it has 2 PCI - E. What does Peripheral connections mean?

Not recommending this, just using one that I would buy if I needed one:

I do have experience with other Ultra power supply units and I'm comfortable with them.

Guy's i need a power supply that will let me connect an older hard drive as a slave drive, along with my SATA drive as the master drive. What type of feature do i need in the power supply in its feature set to check that off? peripheral connections?

Essentially is the molex connection all i need to connect a old IDE hard drive to the power supply?

If you had bothered to look at the specs for any of the power supplies listed...you would have found all the info you needed to know before purchasing any power supply...IMO.
