if you put nothing else on the drive no.

Is it ata 100 or ata133?

The difference tends to be thought of as bigger but isn't really

Well even so

the normal transfer rate of a drive isn't even close to the maximum bandwith. The drives cache is what is bottlenecked but since its 2 or 8mb it shouldn't make much of a difference
