My PC has an Asus P4PE motherboard with two connectors for 'thin cable'
Serial ATA150. My current drive is an IDE drive, but I need to replace that
IDE drive. The P4PE was made when Serial ATA was still very new. Should I
get an SATA drive or stick with IDE on this motherboard? Thank you.
Re: Asus P4PE with Serial ATA ok?
Your board was prior to southbridge integral SATA function,
meaning it uses a Promise chip on the PCI bus to accomplish
SATA interface. That inherantly limits the performance and
takes away from PCI throughput, it will be better
performance to use a PATA drive IF the two drives you
compare are otherwise equal except for the interface type.
In other words, if you bought a Raptor it might outweight
the detractions of using SATA but otherwise use PATA.
