Windows 7: Suggestions for quality PS/2 to USB adapters?

Suggestions for quality PS/2 to USB adapters?

Hey all!

I've got two old early-90's PS/2 keyboards that I love the feel of and would love to be able to use them on my new computer, but my new machine doesn't have a PS/2 port on the motherboard!

Can anybody suggest a good ACTIVE (i.e. not the cheap passive ones!) adapter for using an older PS/2 keyboard in a USB plug that they know works well and that they trust?

Cheers and thanks!

I really don't believe any of them are all that good, SANOXY USB to PS/2 Adapter: Electronics

If that is what you want make sure your next mother board has the connection on it
Some new z170 boards do have them or at least one ps/2 connector.

20 -> 24 pin adapters
Do these things supply enough juice? In my search I expected to find a molex adapter to add a 4-pin to the 20. I'm having some heavy-duty stability issues. Can I get an adapter or swap out the PSU?
