Yeah! fudget'bout ATA100, the SATA is better.
And I have the one that mtuccio linked in post #4.

Well, I've got 2 320GB sata drives coming my way in a few days!

I almost bought the 320s but paying an extra $40 was not an option, I didn't really need them, just replaced my old 2x120GBs in RAID 0 to Perpendicular 2x250GBs for RAID 0, so that all of my 5x HDDs are 250GB each now.

Nevertheless the Segates are great HDDs for their price and warranty along with the new Perpendicular recording and 16MB of cache.

So, good choice on those 320s.

Thanks...640GB+250GB ata....not to mention about 4 other various ata hard drives I have just sitting around. These new drives sound great. Though I'm not sure the performance to be gained from raid-0 is worth it for me...600gb is a lot to lose. I've never done a raid configuration either. Is it worth it really? I'm gonna see a huge hard drive performance jump anyway when I build this system just by using modern drives....

For me RAID 0 is better, is it worth it? Well, I'm not going back to a single drive ever, I've been using RAID 0 since 2004 and anytime I try a my 2nd rig with a single HDD? I feel a difference and I don't mean day-n-nigh difference but I guess I'm so used to RAID now that I can see some sort of difference and I llllllllllllllllike it!

you don't lose any space in RAID 0, RAID 0 is striping the data across the drives only, ther eis no backup, so no "lost" space.

As to whether it's worth it, the RAID setup in the P5B Deluxe was pretty easy, and it was my first time to, and it was definatly worth it for me when I went and looked at my D drive properties and saw 835GB of space available (only 3 drives at the time and a 50GB partition for Windows seperate).

When I install the 4th drive this weekend and see over 1TB of storage space....it will be totally worth it.

Yeah...I was thinking...wow I'm going to have half a terrabyte. Almost a full terrabyte. In 1994 my little BBS dialing 56k/sec punk ass would never have believed it!!!

I just came back from CompUSA to get some AS5 and to poke around, and I saw an ATA to SATA converter for about $30. Could I use one with this P5B-Deluxe to run my 4 other drives in SATA?

If not, how many ATA drives will this board give me? I'm a little confused by this separate controller for ATA and how many drives it can handle.
