Will an ide hdd work?

I found a 200gb IDE hdd lying around in the house and I want to put it in my system but the motherboard (msi b85 e33) only has Sata ports, so should I buy some adapter? I'm open to all solutions.

there is adapters but make sure you get the right one because some say that they can be used as a sata to ide and ide sata but it won work like that i will try to find one for you

Thank you because I did see a lot of sata to ide adapters so I will be more cautious about it.
