I'm about to buy a new HD, probably Seagate as I've always found them to be excellent. However, I have a couple of questions: 1) Is there some kind of problem with Windows XP and HDs over 200GB in size? I read somewhere that certain drivers require special software to initially boot or something. 2) In a nutshell, is it worth getting S-ATA for the extra few quid? I've got 1 80GB IDE HD at the moment, but I'm not bothered about RAID or anything. I've been told by some people that S-ATA is much quicker than IDE, but others have said there there is no noticeable difference except when running benchmarks. Can anyone confirm either of these stories? Thanks. Reps as usual.
