I just purchased: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5862814789 which is a dual 1gighrtz with 1.5gigs of ram and 10/100/1000 nic ... but if I am reading right.. it only supports ata66... Does this make any sense? Hopefully my source is wrong. Why would you have a 1000mbit NIC and only have ata66? Doesn't seem right.
Am I off? because I really believe ata100 would provide a far superior perforance boost... right?
I would go with Sata. Its actually cheaper and easier to route the cables. Ata 66 is only going to slow the fastest drives down. Until recently, there were not very many drives that could actually hit 66mbs. There are none that hit 100 or 133mbs. If you are really concerned, pick up a Seritek pci Sata card from Firmtek.
By the way, you can use ata100/133 drives on the ata66 bus.
