My System Specs


You can probably find a bandwidth/transfer speed comparison of the two by a simple Google search. But, these SATA drives have actually been around for quite some time. I would highly suggest switching to one for better airflow, performance, and looks i.e. less clutter.

Just looked it up...IDE has transfer speeds of up to 1Gbps (gigaBIT), while SATA can have up to 5 Gbps (again, gigaBIT, not BYTE). An IDE drive with today's speeds is not possible. SATA is the way to go.
