Default help me with SATAII and IDE/ATA

guys, i cant beleive what i have done. i have ordered and recieved the seagate barracuda ATA rather than the SATAII. i am andry at this moment and do not know what to do.

i have 2 options.

i can either keep this IDE drive

or send it back (i have to pay expensive postage), pay a bit extra and get the SATAII sent to me

i really cant be bothered with the hassle of sending it back, but it is still a possibility because on the other hand, i dont want to be stuck with a £60 odd drive that uses old technology i.e. IDE

what should i do? would i notice a difference in anyway from having a 250gb 7200 16mb cache IDE interface to the same drive but SATAII?

i really am kicking myself

thanks guys
