I know i'm probably getting annoying, but I have another computer question. I'm a bit confused with all these different connection's on motherboards for hard drives. I understand RAID, but what are all the 3.0 Gb/s, PATA, and the difference of SATA and ATA100. I have ATA100 for my hard drive but I don't really understand what this mean's. Even if you could give me a link for something that explains this better, I tried different thing's on google and couldn't really find anything. Once again thank you for taking the time to at least read this, I really appreciate it. :thumbsup:

Well I think its a good question and have also wondered about this. Pretty much, ive been going with an 'if it fits' motto and guess its time to consider this for my next upgrade. (so far, ive only done stuff with ata100)

Webopedia has good explanations that most anyone can understand.
