Is there actually much difference between a 7200 RPM drive on 133 / 100? Hoping to get me some proper storage space!
Cheers

There is a big difference between UDMA 66 drives, and UDMA 133 drives. Run PCMark, Sandra, any other hard disk benchmarking software out there will show an improvement between 66 and 133.

There is a small difference between 100 and 133 but in real applications you will not notice it. Make sure you get 133 cable.

For real applications try and get a drive with a 8MB cache cos that really does help - alot!
