Hello. I just upgraded my mobo to an Abit NF7-S today. This mobo has both IDE and SATA and it came with a connector converter to connect ONE IDE device to sata. On my previous mobo, I had 2 IDE harddrives (both MAXTOR DiamondMax 7200 160GB) connected to IDE0 and A dvd-drive connected to IDE1. Two Questions: 1) Should I connect one drive to sata using the converter, connect the 2nd hard drive to IDE0 as master and have dvd-drive remain as master on IDE1? 2) If I do this, should I make my primary boot device the sata or keep it the IDE? Will I notice any boost in performance by doing so coming from the fact that 2 hard drives are not connected to one IDE cable (as i mentioned both hd's are IDE, Im just using the converter to connect to sata).
