I want to install a new SATA hard drive.  I now have two regular ATA hard drives.  I want the new SATA to be the master and I want to keep a second ATA hard drive.  I have read that SATA uses differnet connections and different cables than ATA.  I have a an Itell 850 MB.  Will my MB have the connections I need and will the SATA come with the right cables and is the power connection the same.

Will I see a noticably difference in performane of the SATA v the ATA?
