Default Maxtor ATA 100 or ATA 130 for performance?

Which maxtor drive is best for performance?
I have a Maxtor ATA 100GB 8mb Cache ultra ATA/133 7200 rpm (bought
last year) and a Maxto 200GB ultra ATA/100 7200 RPM drives (bought
this year). The 200gb drive is a DiamondMax 21. I don't need the extras drive space. Which drive would be the better to install as a second data drive in a Athon 1333mhertz compute for performance? Does it make that much difference?? The data drive will probably be move to a newer more modern computer very soon.
thank you

Well, the ATA133 is 33MHZ faster, but the difference is noticeable, but not enough to say dramaticly.

You can put the second hard drive to any PC. IT won't slow down.
