SATA vs IDE

My new MoBo has both SATA and IDE interfaces (2 each), which I will be switching to tonight.

My old system has 2 ATA/100 7200 RPM IDE drives (80Gb and 160Gb).

Should I upgrade to the SATA, will I see any difference?
 
SATA is a little trickier to get to be your bootup drive for windows, during the OS install you have to load the dirvers by pressing F6.

Hrm? When I used my 160 GB, it had no problems...without pressing F6.


I was installing XP SP1, maybe that had to do with it.
