Jenox said:Actually a lot of UltraIDE drives outperform SATA II drives. SATA is the newest thing otu there though, and RAID is just a disk linked with another disk to have some kind of performance gain. I.E Raid 0, 1 0+1 etc etc
Matt you need to read my post # 6 man so your better informedMattieDaShark83 said:Sata is the way to go. If you buy any type of new motherboard you'll most likely only get 1 IDE plug in. And thats going to go to your DVD drives. Plus IDE transfers at 133/mb max Sata2 transfers at 300/mb sec. Much faster. Sata1 runs 150/mbs sec which is still faster then the IDE. I guess If you really want IDE drives you could buy a IDE controller and waste a PCI slot.
