I actually work at Best Buy and that Seagate 120GB Ultra ATA hard drive was the one that we had on sale for $30 after the rebates for the Black Friday sale. I mean even though it is slower than a SATA or RAID hard drive, you still can't beat the extra hard drive space for only $30.

Either way, it is worth it...if I would have more money, I'd buy 2-3 of them...

personally if u have SATA avalible 2 u then buy sata, it's alot better than ATA in my opinion. for 1 you don't have the thick cables, luckly for those without sata there getting the tube IDE cables. 2 u can place ur hardrive lower in the case usually because IDE is more restraint 2 the top usually. 3 SATA is faster. so personally SATA is the way 2 go, it will soon be the new standard anyway.

Moose is certainly right about the difference in SATA and Ultra ATA. By the way Moose, I like your PC man.
