I just ordered a 250 Gb SATA Hd. I currently have a 200 and 80 GB drives, both are Ide. Can I leave them both in and add the SATA drive and use it as another slave? I have an Intel D865GBF Mobo with both SATA and IDE interfaces(obviously) :thumbsup:

Yes, this will work. But If I remeber from a previous setup I did, youll have to set the sata drive as the master and the ide as the slave or else your system wont recognize the drive to boot from. But try both setups to see if it will work.

Thanks Salo.

Will all 3 drives work together on this motherboard?

If your not planning to boot from it, it should be almost plug and play. All three should work fine together.
