Default SATA vs ATA-133

i was thinking of either getting a 40gb ata-133 HDD for $47 or a 80gb SATA HDD for $70

i'll take up AT MOST around 10gb and this game is used primarily for browsing and gaming (i really don't care about load times, i could always do something else while games load)

so is the ata-133 enough?

What kind of Mobo, and what games? The speed that the SATA provides isn't going to be needed for a couple of years.
