I'm looking to buy a new internal hard drive. I'm not sure what type of connection I have for it, though, whether it's SATA or PATA. How do I find this out?

Yeah, it's a wide-ribbon cable and the system was made in 2002. So it looks like PATA. Are there converters I could get and how much do they usually run?

As jimbo1763 already hinted,
Considering costs,
Purchasing a PCI SATA card just to run SATA drive(s) would not be cost effective.
