Well mate, you should be more specific next time, lol. The link I posted shows the difference.

Or if you want the short version: SATA is much faster.

EDIT: Lemme rephrase that. It has the potential to be much faster.

Nowhere in your post did I see the word 'performance' .

They're going to be the same, unless you are able to perfectly somehow get the exact right condtions to take use of the 3.0gh/s bandwidth SATA2 offters...not much of a difference besides smaller cables really.

Mate, I've had a few English classes in my day.

But to reply to what you SEEM to be trying to say: why buy something that has limited potential when for the same, or sometimes LESS cost, you can get something with a higher speed potential?

Not to mention IDE cables are annoying as crap.

SATA drives are cheaper nowadays, and are generally having a larger cache (which contributes to the larger speed boost...as well as most higher RPM'd drives are SATA too).
