Yes, sata is faster and has the smaller cables then the large ribboin IDE cables. To find out what you have, find out what kind of mobo you have and do some research on it. Or look at it and see if you could see "L" shaped connections like this:

Sata 2 has NCQ and most 16MB cache drives are on Sata.

Other than the maximum "theorectical" output, the same drives with a different interface are about the same.

Faster transfer Speeds.
However, SATA 1 Speeds are not fully utilized yet.

SATA 1 & 2 Is also PNP and Hot swapable.
While EIDE is not..

PNP = Plug N Play, Meaning it is auto configuring, you don't have to set any jumpers or DIP switches.

Hot Swapable means you can connect and Disconnect the Drives while the Computer is on.
