2 Sata but 2 HDD, 1 DVD-RW.. Help


Fat sleepy boy
Hi friends...
I have a little problem. I have only 2 SATA (3Gbps) ports in my motherboard. One is connected to my HDD and other is connected to my DVD-RW.
I am planning for buying another HDD which I am going use internally. I mean not as external HDD. I don't want to buy an IDE or PATA HDD. Is there anything like SATA to IDE or SATA to PCI convertor cable or connector available? Then what are the prices?
Again will it decrease HDD read/write performance when using these connectors?
I would really like to know!!!
Thanks in advance.

yes there is an IDE to SATA convertor which costs Rs400...too costly to use...and obviously the speed would decrease coz IDE ports r slower then SATA..
