My situation...Im running an old Seagate 20gb and its way past time to upgrade. I cant spend a whole lot, but anything around $100 is ok. Seeing as though my old drive is IDE im guessing, would I be able to get a SATA hard drive? What would be the advantages? Could I keep my old HD for windows XP, and have a new better HD for playing games and such? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
