I have always thought that OF COURSE SATA would be the way to go.

The more i think about it... i think i am correct.
Many people say that SATA drives arent hardly any faster then your standard IDE hard drive, but its the convienence of them all.

They work wonders with RAID.

Any thoughts anyone?

SATA = Serial ATA ;)

Yeah that's true, its not that much faster than IDE but if ur having heat problems, this will minimise it and using RAID will give it that speed boost!

yerp...
i dont think i would go any other way if i were upgrading.
The cost difference isnt very significant either... so its cost effective.
