1. upgrade to SATA or stick with IDE?
2. if I do go to SATA, my mobo is sata 150, is sata 300 backwards compatible? (SATA 300 has a much better selection is all)
B. How much, if at all, will Windows XP complain about the switch to a new drive?
My current hard drive is a Western Digital Caviar model WDC WD800JB-00ETA0 (80.0GB), I'd like to upgrade to about 200-300GB (or more).
I haven't done much research on drives yet as I wanted to see what I'm gettin myself into first.
