Default SATA and SATAII?

Hey everyone, I'm looking at building a computer, but I have a question, what would the difference between these two hard-drives be?



Will they both work on an ASUS P5B? Thanks!

The second one has a 16MB cache instead of an 8MB cache. For the extra money, I don't think the second one is worth it from that site.

Both will work fine. Sata 1 works w/ Sata 2 and Sata 2 works w/ Sata 1.

With the extra Cache You will see a preformence increase when writting or reading large files.

Whteher its worth the extra cash or not is up to you.

Hmm. It's only 17 dollars more... But then again the Seagate one offers a 5 year warranty. I might just go with the Seagate. Thanks everyone .
