Im bulidng a new computer. I went and bought an 80GB IDE one. I thought it was SATA. Now should I sell this one and buy a SATA one, or just stick with the IDE one?

Listen to mr.monger for the price difference an 18Mhz gain isn't all that impressive. Only sell it if you plan to buy a SCSI, which still costs more but blows the ATA and SATA out of the water.

Can't you return the drive or exchange for another one? If it's too much of a hassle, keep the EIDE one. You won't see a "tremendous" gain from a SATA drive.
