You won't notice any difference between SATA and IDE. IDE is fast enough.
wrong SATA is 3x faster than IDE

The hard drive doesn't sustain data transfer faster than IDE (ATA 100). Therefore, the serial cable's extra speed can not be used (except for bursts).

Getting back on topic tho, YES your mobo will work with SATA, but needs a SATA-IDE cable or a SATA card.

haha...uhh, hmm..how to reply to this one

i have sata 3.0 on a 160gb WD, and i LOOOVVVEEEE IT! xp bar goes acrost half way then i have desktop...funny, everybody always says, whaaaat?...

you will notice best when copying files on that harddrive, eg: from your documents folder to your desktop, say on an ide, a certian file would take 30s, on sata it takes about 13s. its truly incredible the first time you use it, i first used it on a C2D dell that had 512 mb and a 250gb sata hdd...i loved it, got it here, and i still love it.

gotta love how fast technology is moving nowadays...whats next? SATA9.3gb/s? hah

The hard drive itself is faster. The SATA cable can't make it go faster than it is.

Most hard drives can only sustain 40-70 MB/s which is still slower than the ATA 100 interface. The SATA interface can handle 3x the bandwidth but the drives can barely use a fraction of that.

Here are the benchmarks:

You say "Most hard drives can only sustain 40-70 MB/s which is still slower than the ATA 100 interface.".

On that link you gave, only one drive is slower than 70 MB/s. You just contradicted yourself.

Your looking at the wrong benchmark. Change it to Average Read Transfer Performance.

Yeah you have to buy a card to use a SATA drive, your motherboard doesn't have any built in SATA plugs.
