Hi
I am thinking of buying a new hard for my pc, which hard drive is the best SATA or IDE

Your help in this matter would be much appreciated

So long as your motherboard has sata connectors, and there is a sata connector on your psu i would choose sata. Psu isn't critical as adapters can be bought, whereas having the connectors on the motherboard is.

Have a look at click here the wikipedia entry on sata with photos of all necessary connectors.
For reference click here the same for IDE
