Yup, SATA is faster and has a tiny little cable, not that bloody ribbon.

sata is faster (transfer rate) and ide is slower, uglier and bigger (bad cable management)

sata = faster.
ide = slower.

I am 33% addicted to Counterstrike. What about you?

92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you are part of the 8% who still listen to real music, copy and paste this.

Biggest difference, for me, has been the fact that SATA supports NCQ. Many people don't seem to notice the difference with NCQ, but I certainly do. Some tasks are many times faster with it.

Sustained transfer rates are not that different between SATA and PATA, all other things being equal.
