  1. hi i have a question i have an hp 8034n desktop with which i just upgraded to a 500 watt antec and it has 2 sata cables the same as my oem supply does this mean i cant' add another sata harddrive or dvd burner if not are there any alternatives? i was reading you might not be able to use a molex to sata adapter because the standard connector will not supply 3.3 volt power is this true?help

    Yes it is true- or you can add an additional SATA expansion card - probably easier.
