IDE AND sata2....together?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
what are the advantages/disadvantages (if any) of using my 80G IDE hdd as media storage (music, videos etc) and using a sata-2 drive for the o/s and games?

i dont think there would be much of any.. your games and os will benefit from the faster drive.. and since its music and media doesnt really matter that its on a slower ide.. you wont notice a differance really..

the thing is, im getting a 250G W/D Caviar SE16 sata-2, to replace my current maxtor. so it would be better to just put everything on that? not sure if i want to dispose of my ide just yet, it useful for storage

I'd hold on to it. It won't hurt the SATA drives performance, and will be usefull for things like music or images that aren't that intensive, but take up large amounts of space.

There's nothing wrong w/ using an IDE w/ a SATA, well besides the bigger cable, and the IDE is slower, but it's perfectly fine to use both.

I have mixed and matched them all--you're good to go--usually the smaller SATA drives are slightly more reponsive and a little quieter because they have fewer platters. Mostly a slow drive is a good place for backing up data or other files that are not likely to be on call very often. Anything you will be calling into memory should be on your fastest drive.

Partitioning the new drive might be a good idea so that you can easily reload your OS (it happens) without having to lose all that non-OS data.

It wont Hurt performance having them together at all. Having the OS on SATA will be faster though.
