ATA and IDE are one and the same. Make sure you are looking at the right information because there are a number of factors that will cause price differences in these drives such as buffer size, rpm, interface and capacity.

Im not sure, but the advice I can give, is to enter everything you want; price, write speed, read speed, everything. And from the results, reguardless if its IDE or ATA, its got what you want, so just purchase the best one.
