Dear Techies

I need some advice I have inadvertently bought a Seagate barracuda 120 ultra/100 instead of a baracuda SATA drive.
I would like to know if there is much difference in performance between the 2 drives. Also if I decide to keep the drive I got is there a difference in installing this drive compared to an ordinary IDE Drive. My M/B is an ASUS A7N8X deluxe.

Now i am not a professional but, apparently there is little differace between the two. SATA "aparently" is cheeper to make and may have a higher buffer rate. This is just what i have read.

You'd need a very good eye to see any performance difference, since the speed of the interface on either type of drive far exceeds the data rate to/from the raw media. That drive is a standard IDE drive, just stick it on the 40 pin (80 conductor) cable and enjoy it. :)
