Default Which HDD is better for Webserver Serial ATA or IDE?

Hi Guys
I just want to know what would be the best to use for HDD for Webserver? Serial ATA or IDE? and would 320gb HDD be big enough to handle e-commerce site, email server,file server, FTP uploads?

The Serial ATA150 Raptor 10K RPM drives would be your top choice, though they don't give you a very good price per storage ratio. Because of this, I wouldn't recommend them at all. I'd just go with a nice SATA3.0 7.2K RPM drive.

Depends on how many users for how much storage you'll need. I personally wouldn't think 320 GB would be enough... but it just depends on how much you think you'll be storing.
