i'm going from a motherboard with only ide connectors to a board with 2 sata connectors. i was considering getting a new sata hard drive instead or reusing my ide one. i haven't used sata connections before,,,the specs for the motherboard say 2 sata 7-pin connectors, and i was looking at hard drives on newegg and it lists them by either sata 3Gb/s or sata 150. how do i know which one to get?
was thinking of this one (it's one of the 3Gb/s ones)... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148144
also, on the back of the drive there is the sata connector, and a power connector,,,i imagine you have to hook up both of these, or do sata drives get the power through the sata connection? just asking because from the diagrams i am looking at it doesn't look like i have a power supply connector which will fit onto the sata drive.
