I am wondering My wifes system is a pretty fast machine BUT older IDE hard drives not sata. I am wondering if adding a sata control card for my 160 sata 150 HD would benefit her or would getting another IDE drive be better idea . From my experience adding card to the pci slot(which most of the controls cards operate off of) is not faster than a on-board chip set . Also would there be any speed difference because of that. I mean yea I have a new sata drive but buying a $50 control card when I can get a 250 gig IDe hard drive for that price . BIG question IS it worth it?

For all the trouble you will go to making the drive seen and work, you won't see that much difference, buy the ide drive.
