I wouldn't expect too radical differences, especially if you're not
using newer hardware for the whole computer.  There are other,
non-speed, advantages.  But I'd tend to take the point of view that
things are moving away from IDE to SATA, and just concentrate on buying
the hardware that goes together.  My current computers use IDE, so if I
buy another internal drive for them, it'll probably be an IDE, since I
don't want to add another card (a SATA interface).  The next drive I'll
buy will really depend on what the computer is like that it goes into.

Good idea Tim. In my case I did a new computer and it had the SATA built in so I in error thought they were a lot faster data rate. But they work and the thinner cable is easy to work with.
