SATA is newer than IDE. IDE has been around for ages, and works well. you can also use it for CD drives.
SATA, however, gives faster transfer rates. currently hard drives don't get up to the top speed IDE allows for, although the SATA cables are much smaller, which is what a lot of people go for.

Send a message via AIM to PZEROFGH

you might see a speed change but most people say the sound is a lot quieter on SATA
