I want to add another hard disk in my system as the 40 GB HD is already full. Which one will be the best, IDE (Ultra ATA or Serial ATA) or SCSI HDD in the range of 80 GB to 200 GB HDD?
In your system, yes. It does not have native sata support. You must install a controller card in order to use sata. I would just get a regular ide drive. There really is not much difference in speed between a sata drive and a pata [regular ide] drive.atish_aa said:Will SATA also require a controller card as opposed to a SCSI Drive?
