  1. i was looking on ebay to get an idea for prices of a new internal hdd and noticed that there are different kinds. im guessing that these are types of connections. im not sure what ones im using but i think they are IDE(the flat, grey cables?). i was just wondering if someone can point me in the right direction.

    my motherboard is a gigabyte RZ series 8S661FXMP-RZ.

    are any of these types faster than others? or any benefits or anything?

    any help is much appreciated.

    cheers.
