Default SATA I vs SATA II

Just wanted to get a few opinions out there.

Is there really any benefit of having SATA II vs SATA I? I'm looking at putting 2 Seagate 160MB HD's in my system for a RAID 0 config.

Thanks for the opinions.

all i know is that SATA, has a high-speed serial interface of 150 megabytes per second. SATA II has a speed of 300 mbps. and aparrently it supports more robust cable connectors. also it supports more sophisticated connectivity options ( for example SATA port multipliers.

so yeah there is a benifit and in the future (you guessed it) SATAI will probally be a thing of the past as SCSI and IDE basically are now. but just make sure that your motherboard supports SATAII.

isn't SATAII backwarsd compatible anyway? eg. i put a 500GB SATAII disk on my LanParty despite it only supporting SATA150, yet the disk still works becuase its backwards compatible.
