Hey folks, I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to hard-drives. Thing is, I've nearly completed my new gamer build, just need a few more parts. I currently have an 80GB Maxtor ATA133 (I think) hard-drive: 6Y080L0.
I want to increase my storage capacity when I get my new build put together, and am looking at an 80GB SATA II Western Digital drive. This will give me a total of 160GB, which should be more than enough for both my 3D modeling work AND games.
I'm just wondering whether I would be able to run SATA II and ATA133 drives at the same time? And also, will my mobo support it: Gigabyte K8N SLi nForce4 SLi PCI-Express Motherboard.
(and a last question, how much better is SATA compared to ATA)
- Any help you can give on this subject would be great.
