[mythtv-users] S-ATA versus plain old parallel

I'm spec'ing up a box for my production Myth machine and was wondering what
the deal is with S-ATA versus plain parallel drives. Not being a Linux guru
I'm interested to hear from anyone with an opinion on this.
I guess I just havn't messed around with hardware for a while and am not up
on the latest. From my preliminary Myth install (in an old banger PC) and
scanning this list it is apparent that HD throughput is of pretty major
importance. Does S-ATA give a worthwhile performance boost or does it pose
more problems than it solves?
BTW I'm looking at an Intel D865GLC board and potentially a 200GB Maxtor
being fed from my nice shiny new Hauppauge 350.
