I have an ASUS P4BGL-MX motherboard and have purchased a WD SATA Hard Drive. I now realize I need to purchase a SATA controller card as my motherboard has no SATA conection. Here's my question, will the controller card provide power to the hard drive or do I need to purchase a power cable too? Any help would be much appreciated.
Unfortunately I bought the drive at an Office Depot that went out of business and I can't exchange it. On the bright side the price I paid will allow me to purchase the pci connector and power adapter and still save a couple $. Thanks for the help.
