    ANother thing we all need to consider as time goes by, is that the newer the PC the less likely it is to run 'legacy' hardware, which is exactly what the IDE standard is going through, and it won't be long with the advent of the SSD's that we will soon see the SATA's going the same way. The SSDs are becoming higher capacity, less expensive with a much longer time between breakdowns. I fully expect to see this same question asked about SATA compatibility with SSDs, in the next year or so.
