like everybody says sata HD right now is not really faster than IDE HD.( but they will improve the next generation ) However, If you decide to use the sata as well as your IDE, yes you can keep your IDE drive as a slave.( or your SATA as a slave ) Make sure that you set your BIOS correctly.GUSMAN said:Hi
I have an Asus mobe with sata capabilities, however, there is and IDE hard drive connected to it at the moment. Would it be any advantage to get a sata hdd, and could I still use the IDE hdd as a slave??
