You need to add a controller card for SATA. These are not expensive. One you might consider is this:
Vantec UGT-ST200 Serial ATA PCI Host Card
It costs about $25, and is available many places, including Tiger Direct, Fry's Electronics, and others. Here is a link to one on the Fry's website. Shop around, you might even find it somewhere else cheaper:
Once you install the card in an empty PCI slot, you install a new SATA hard drive, and cable it to it. It should work fine with your existing PATA drive(s).
