Hard Drive Selection in OCC Market Place Posted September 2, 2005 I need some help choosing a HD.I notice on ppl's sigs they have a SATA, PATA and IDE. What do they mean, and what should I get. Bare in mind I'm a college student, playing PC games and just need to store music and stuff. No photo editing or anything like that. But I plan on configuring them in a RAID 0. Thanks in advance. Seagates have 5 year warranties. You can usually find them on the cheap at outpost.com . Usually have 50 to 60 dollar rebates. See Outpost 300 GB PATA for $99 bucks after rebate with free shipping . However that rebate expired a day ago, but deals like that spring up every month there.
