I have an EVGA X58 SLI3 Motherboard that doesn’t allow any IDE drives to be plugged into it.

The EVGA X58 SLI3 Motherboard has two available PCI Express x1 Slots and two PCI Express x16/x8 Slots.

Please post the URL addresses of where I can purchase the right type of expansion card that will allow me to connect IDE devices to my EVGA X58 SLI3 Motherboard.

I would like to purchase an expansion card that have two IDE connectors so that I can connect a maximum of four IDE drives to my EVGA X58 SLI3 Motherboard.
