Are There any IDE Desktops?

I'm looking for a new desktop but all have now switched the hard Drive over to Sata. I need one that's still IDE, are there still any available?

I want to get my stuff off my old pc's hard drive, it's ide and I heard with a sata I can't? Is this true?
What options do I have to transfer my info from the old hard drive to a new cpu?

So with an enclosure I can load my old hard drive info onto a new computer?
Also, how does it work? Do I put my old Hard Drive in the enclosure?

you should just be able to install the hd in the enclosure and plug it into the computer and your files should be there.

just dont format till you get what you want off of it

Thanks to all for the help. This has totally sucked having my desktop crash on me...all of my movies, songs, files etc I thought I'd lose b/c of the new Sata HD's on all the new desktops. I appreciate the info and will try and get everything together with the next week or so. More than likely I'll be here with more questions during that time frame too

Thanks again guys
