Default incredably slow hdd

i have recently installed an SATA Hdd with a PCI adapter and i have never seen a computer run this slow. Its like its always loading and makes an extremely annoying load noise as it does it. It is my storage drive and usually where i keep my larger files, which it tends to struggle more with. My other ata hard disk runs perfect. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Seagate 7200.7 160GB
ALi RAID adapter (PCI)
Celeron 2.4Ghz

I'd say its your adapter. PCI is not extremely fast.

I just began having the same problem after my power went out. Storage ATA drive ran perfectly before hand. Now i can still see all my data but the access is painfully slow. Not sure what the problem is because my other ATA drive runs fine.
