Hi. Will there be any problems or is it okay if I have a sata interfaced hard drive and an IDE interfaced optical drive? I'm planning to buy a new hard drive because my current hard drive is failing and the only one in stock at the stores that I've asked is having the sata interfaced hard drive and with that i want to retain my current optical drive because of tight budget. I'm only new in assembling my own computer so please understand.thanks.
