that one in the above link will allow u to connect 2 drives, i would connect your optical drives to the controller card or u could just buy a sata dvd burner and maybe sell the ide opticals....
the sata burners run about 25 bucks on special

PCI add on card is probably the best solution. You can get IDE\SATA conversion adapters, and SATA data cable and some adapters use the molex power socket to stabilize the platform, which means you'd have to get molex to SATA power adapters as well if your power supply didn't have them. You also need enough room to manuver and connect to the hard drive with extension stuck on the back

You can connect up to two devices per IDE cable, and this card has two IDE cable connectors, meaning you could have 4 devices.
