    Well... I'm not a newbie, but as you might notice from my posts, I've been out of the hardware loop for about 3 years. (;

    So, here's my question:

    Will an ATA 133 cable connect my Serial ATA drive to my Serial ATA connection on my motherboard?

    The reason why I'm asking is because I'm looking for a rounded cable to run from my HD to my MB.

    Please help! Thank you!

    serial ata cables are already very thin and flat, so there is no need for a 'rounded' sata cable
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Once again, thanks!

    Alright, so maybe I'm a reborn newbie. :(

    Anyhow, glad to hear that about the cable.

    Next question: Where can I find the cheapest price on a 3.06 p4? What is the cheapest you guys have heard of someone getting it for?

    For US use
    PriceWatch.com
    also PriceGrabber.com I think it might be less US centric.

    resellerratings.com to make sure reseller wont rip you off.

    S-ATA cable pict.
    Someday I would like to become knowledgeable so that I could do penance for all the stupid questions I have and have yet to ask.
