Hey do you know if serial HD's actually run faster than the regular PCI ones? I heard a guy today claim he loaded WinXP in like 5 mins on a SATA drive...and was intrigued... So, I'm thinking of getting a new motherboard this week, one that actually supports SATA HD. I'm cheap, and I found this one: http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=KT6V-LSR&class=mb Any comments? I've never worked on an MSI MB before, but I've been happy with the router and wireless network I have from MSI. I can get this board for less than $100.
