SATA is faster if buying new go or SATA.

Djpcex,

as Fruit Bat /\0/\, states SATA is marginally faster, but the main point to consider, is that now you will only get one IDE channel on most motherboards, and this will almost certainly be used for optical drives.

Sata, is definitely the way forward now.

I have both IDE & SATA drives installed and can't notice any difference.
