Default Scsi? Sata?

I'm having troubles thinking this out. My old IDE drive is giving out.
I have an IBM-36 gb, 10k SCSI drive. I am not sure if it works... I still need to buy cables and a controller card for it. Those will end up costing me another 40 bucks.
My motherboard has onboard SATA. I've been thinking about buying an 80gig, 7200 rpm drive.

Is the SCSI drive worth the hassle? Is it hard to setup and install a SCSI drive? Or should I just stick to getting the SATA drive?

Check the IBM drives read/write speeds and compare them to a SATA drive you can afford.

I agree with TheMajor. Check the specs on the SCSI drive. You can get really high transfer rates out of SCSI drives compared to SATA or PATA (IDE).
