    Baraccuda V 120gig SATA or PATA?

    as the title says.. i already have a PATA Baraccuda, 120gig 8meg cache, and an NF7-S...

    so do i buy PATA or SATA... I have a Serielle adapter, so I could run the PATA thru the onboard controller.

    So whats best guys.. to have 2 identical PATA, or one SATA and one PATA.

    with two PATA i can use both on either (tho would need to buy one more serielle and SATA leads... seen one on FS forum)

    With one SATA one PATA, i could run both on a raid array, using the serielle i already have... although I dont intend to at the moment, as I want to keep all my data that is sitting one my current HDD.

    It would be nice to have the option, though will there be any problems having a SATA, and a PATA + serielle in a raid array?


    Long question I know, please give us the benefit of any experience youve had.

    Cheers, and merry Xmas

    If your not going to run raid you might as well get the SATA

    yea, its only a fiver difference, tho is there any way backwards compatibility can be acheived, going from serial to parallel.. also, I may well run raid in the future (after a format or whatever), so is there any problem/deficit in runnng one Parallel, one serial in SATA raid?

    There should be no real issues

    I've got 2 x 80 Gb Seagate SATA ( true SATA not these fake PATA to SATA drives ) and also a 80 Gb Maxtor PATA HDD and all these run fine on an Abit NF7-S

    Windows loads well faster on the SATA drive as does games

    SATA is the way to go as soon SATA v 2 is out with a speed of 300 Mb/s and then near 2005 SATA v 3 is out with speeds of 600 Mb/s

    Hope this helps
