IDE / SATA / PATA / SATA Compatibility

I've got a dell poweredge 1600SC 2400MHz xeon server with 120GB IDE disk and I want to add another disk to it.

I was thinking that it would make sense to put a scsi disk in it. But anything that works will do.

Device manager tells me it has the following devices:

          LSI Logic Inc Logic PCI-X Ultra320 SCSI Host Adapter
          Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller##(Standard IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers)

Can I buy a scsi disk and connector cable, or do I have to stick with IDE ?

thanks

"LSI Logic Inc Logic PCI-X Ultra320 SCSI Host Adapter" - By reading this sentence, I guess you can use SCSI disk without any problem.
