Default 160gb Sata 3.0gbs Harddrive over 20gb ATA133?

ok guys..i have had this 20gb ata100 or 133 drive for a while (not sure)...but im going to buy an sata 3.0gb/s 160gb harddrive...and i have 2 inputs for sata 1.5 gb/s on my mobo...but 3.0gb/s will let me be full speed when i upgrade again..now im wondering will this help me load my games much faster?..or just a bit?...also i noticed games and etc. install very quickly on my dads laptop (70gb harddrive sata 3.0gb/s) so do games and other stuff install quicker due to faster writing times or would i not see much difference? thanks!

also im mainly switching to all sata (including getting ride of my 2 cd drives that are ata and buying an stat lite on drive that does everything) so taht i get much better airventilation (my wires are wide not tapered in ) do you guys see sata as a much cleaner way for keeping clases nice and tidy? thanks!

also does it make defragmenting times and disk cleanup times much faster? thanks!

The transfer will be clocked down to 1.5GB/s.

Which 7200 RPM hard drives cant reach anyways.

Anyways, the speed difference you notice will depend highly upon the condition of your 20 gig drive. Getting a great speed out of a hard drive is kinda hit and miss.
