Default Scsi? Sata?

I'm having troubles thinking this out. My old IDE drive is giving out.
1:
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.
2:
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).
