I prefer Seagate hard disks over western digital. Maxtors have a faster ATA133 interface, but they seem to make more noise which is why I don't recomend them. I would recommend a SATA HDD if your motherboard supports it

Will I really notice any difference with the SATA over the ATA? My board does support it.

ATA is advanced atachment interface. yes you will notice a difference of SATA versus ATA100 or ATA133. SATA is ATA150. the number in ATAxxx stands for MB/ sec (megabytes per second. higher is better) if you get a 10,000 or 15,000 RPM SATA disk it will hual ***, I'm talking some serious ***. I'm not sure which SATA models are the best out there, maybe someone can recommend some models for you
