PATA can be found here: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/A/ATA.html

There is a link near the end of the page for Serial ATA. SATA is faster and better in my opinion.

Hope this helps.

pata is parallel ata (normalo IDE) where as SATA is Serial ata. A PATA hard drive will transfer stuff at a maximum of 133mb/s where as SATA is 150mb/s. SATA is defenitly better, and since the wire is smaller, it creates better airflow.

The only reason im doing this is out of extreme boredom. But shouldnt it be it ALLOWS better airflow? Because it doesnt generate aka create airflow of any kind.

Sorry for this dumb post
