Well, its time for a reformat so while i'm doing that, I figured I'd upgrade my HD. I've been using IDE forever and I don't know too much about SATA. Could you reccommend a good SATA HD for less than $100? thanks

I would get two 80gb sata3.0 drives and put them in Raid 0. Should cost a approx 100 - 110 on newegg

yes, I would install the sata first and load the os, then hook up the ata/ide drive and use the windows disk manager

there are no options for master/slave on sata drives as they connect 1 drive per port

maybe you guys could help me, i tried to set up my sata as a primary, windows cant find it, but i'd be happy to put it as slave for storage, but i cant get it to show up. im getting a 200gb IDE this week as a primary, so i want to use the SATA as a slave. please any ideas
