Modern Motherboard with Floppy Port?

I think this is the right place to put this.

 

     So, I'm looking to build my first PC; and I figure that if I'm going to do it, I'll go all in and attempt to make my dream system. One of the things I want the computer to have is a floppy drive. I know that USB floppy drives are a thing, and probably easier, but where's the fun in that? I want the motherboard to have a header to connect a 3.5" drive. Such a requirement might have me start my search with older motherboards where the connector was more common, if not for my other requirement. I also want the computer to be VR capable. This means the motherboard needs to be as new as possible. I'm on the hunt for something that fulfills both requirements, but I could really use a hand.

 

tl:dr     I need help finding the most modern motherboard possible that has a floppy header.

 

Any Suggestions?

Pata to SATA cable converter ought to give you what you want right?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

You are probably going to need to find a PCI -> floppy header device.  There might be PCI-Express but less likely..

Also if it will work on a UEFI system who knows.

Just now, Electronics Wizardy said:

PATA and floppy are different, just saying, you can't mix them.

I'm more used to toying with old CD drives, I have a USB floppy myself. Would a SATA to floppy exist?
