I personally own this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812156010 it connects to an IDE hard drive, to turn it into a SATA drive. I believe that is what you want. I have a total of 4, and they are excellent.

Contrary to what people say on newegg, it is extremely fast, getting about 60 MB/sec sustained from the hard drives that it is attached to, over the IDE bus on the same computer I would get about 50 MB/sec sustained. Absolutely love the device.

I have a P4V8X-X Which has a SATA socket could I use this adaptor and boot straight off? Is any speed increase worth the effort?

Depends on the IDE controller that is onboard. In my case I gained some speed, which really is negated when the drive is not doing just a straight read from /dev/null write to the hard drive. As soon as it has to scatter read/writes again, the speed improvements will be negligible.

Yes you would be able to boot using this adapter.
