Unhappy SATA Hard Drive: Help!...!

Hi Everyone!

I just bought the following:

Western Digital Caviar 120 GB (8 MB) SATA

Are SATA hard drives as easy to setup as IDEs? Are they compatible (software/games) with everything IDEs are?

Thx for clarifying this for me. I really appreciate it.

SATAs are easy to set up and are better for games.
