Do you think I would "see" the difference between a eide and Sata? I just bought a Seagate 160g Eide (ultra-100) and set it up but CompUsa has the same hdd but SATA for the same price of $89.00 after rebates. Think I should change or what? Thanks

I would change it and buy the SATA. Main reason, even if your current system can't tell a big difference, you can use this HD in other future systems that would "appretiate" the faster interface.

Well, if it's the same price for a faster drive...

Plus, even if you decide you don't like it, it has better resale value :)
