Default Hard Drives

Alright I know this is a really stupid question, but the last time I really opened a computer was when i had a Pentium I @ 166Mhz and Serial ATA II simply did not exist. Instead I had to daisychain (if i wanted more than one HD) 2 hard drives on one huge ribon cable. Now, I would like to know is (I) How much faster Serial ATA II is than IDE, and (II) if i would notice a difference if i had 10,000r.p.m. [a] hard drive[s] compared to 7,200?

Futhermore I'm considering the Asus M2N-SLI-Deluxe motherboard (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...297&CatId=2320), which I belive it has a RAID controller, how does this work compared to the conventional RAID PCI card?

and the faster the RPM the faster read write speeds you get.

You would notice faster loading times in windows, applications, or games.

elaborate



EDIT:would a 10,000 =r.p.m. HD really make a difference if its only SATA 150 compared to a 7,200r.p.m. HD thats running the SATA 300 interface?
