Question Seagate dont make....

I was looking for a seagate hard dive that is ATA 133 and I cant seem too find one. Its seems all they make is ATA 100 or 150. Why is that? So is it just as good to run a seagate ATA 100 on a mobo that supports ATA 133 as using a different brand hard drive that is ATA 133?

ATA is old, why do you want to use it?

SATA is same price and is better

Can SATA be used on any mobo? What does the mobo have to support?

New MOBO's now come with SATA controllers built into the board. No less then 2 and up to 8.

Older MOBO's won't have them, but for $60-$100 you can purchase a SATA adapter card for PCI. Then install the drivers and use SATA HDD's.

Which will IMO phase-out IDE HDD's with-in the next 5 years or so.

most average hard drives don't transfer more than about 60MB/s
ATA100 = 100MB/s max, but hard drives aren't using that, let alone ATA133 or even half the SATA bandwith.
the main advantages of SATA are headroom, and the small cables

it's not worth getting ATA133. If I got SATA, it would be for the smaller cables, and so that I can use the IDE cables for something else, like DVD burners

No IDE hard drives are even limited by ATA-66, so it's pointless to want an ATA-133

Most good Hard Drives are only ATA-100 (For the ATA ones, not including SCSI or SATA)

I went SATA just for the cables, a lot better then having so many huge ribons all over.
