I have an older motherboard that I can't afford to replace just yet; it's the Biostar TForce 6100 AM2.

enter image description here

I recently purchased an expensive video card which is dual-width and quite large. This video card extends over the sata ports and does not have any room for straight sata cables to connect.

I managed to connect one hard drive with a sata cable with a right-angle connector, but since both ports are oriented the same direction, I can only hook up one drive this way. Is there some place to buy a "left" right-angle connector cable so I can hook up the other drive? Or do you have any other suggestions for me?

Ultimately I do plan to buy another motherboard in the Spring; I'm just hoping for an inexpensive solution to tide me over until then.

That particular one looks like the right-angle-to-straight that I have. But the one below it, left-angle-to-right-angle, looks like it'll work. Thanks! –  inklesspen Nov 24 '09 at 6:17

sorry, this looks like a "right angle to straight" to me. –  Molly7244 Nov 24 '09 at 3:04

it's a 90 to 90, one looks left, one looks right.
