Max Throughput so far as I know.
Not that we are close to reaching the Bandwidth of ATA133 Yet.

You would need a different external case if you wanted an SATA harddrive. That case is for IDE drives. Besides, even with USB2 or Firewire 800, you wouldn't get any difference in speed from SATA and IDE.

Just get the biggest cheapest 7200rpm IDE harddrive you can find.
