Any SATA users here?
Tomorrow I’ll receive WD 160 GB SATA disk and Abit IC7 mainboard and I need all informations on SATA controller (RAID). Do I need special cables for this thingy? Do I have to find special plugs for SATA on mainboard? Or do I just connect the disk with standard 80-wire IDE cable to the standard IDE controller on motherboard and they’ll communicate about SATA or not automatically?
This is essential for me, because I’m kinda out of the computer scene for three years now and I feel like total lamer.
Thanks to everyone!
