I like, but like Chris said, unless you are willing to pay a lil extra or can find a sweet *** deal, stick with IDE.

I dont think dropping the SATA is a good idea. SATA is not very much. So stick with it, unless money is a huge issue. Basically, if you want a HDD, then you better get SATA, or if you want a AMD64, get socket 939. Or for any other processor, you always want a mobo that supports dual channel memery.

Thats just smart shopping. IDE is pretty much junk. SATA is not ALOT faster, but HDD are so big now. That any increase is needed.
