Question What kind of HDD for and IDE connection?

Hello,

my old PCs HDD is damaged (I have another thread in the trouble shooting sub forum about this), and I want to get a new drive for my old PC.
The motherboard has an IDE connection for the HDD, so my question is, what kind of drive do I need to get?
Would that be ATA?

Yep. IDE = ATA or PATA. SATA = SATA.

Thanks!

Is ATA the more out-dated format?

Yup. SATA is the current standard. SATA 3.0gb/s to be exact.

Thanks !

I thought that already, my new PC has SATA, but my old PC can only have ATA due to the IDE connection.
Is there a difference between ATA and PATA?

Not really, no.

What kind of ATA HDD would you guys recommend me to get?
I think I'd want something like 320GB or around 500GB (do those exist at all or would that be 600GB).

Thanks,
Lars

That's a laptop drive, hikari. Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD5000AAKB 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

EDIT:
Newegg.com - SYBA SD-VIA-1A2S PCI SATA &#47; IDE Combo Controller Card RAID 0,1,0&#43;1 JBOD - Controllers / RAID Cards
and
Newegg.com - HITACHI Deskstar P7K500 HDP725050GLA360 &#40;0A35415&#41; 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb&#47;s 3.5&#34; Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives
work out cheaper. IDE drives are expensive it seems.
