ok, I don't want to sound like an idiot or anything but I can't seems to figure out exactly what the difference is between a SATA or RAID, a promise controller or a fastrack. It's all a little confusing to me.
I have the p4c800 deluxe w/ a WD 120GB hd( it says ultra ata whatever that is) I'm using the IDE cable it came with to connect it to the mobo. I'm having a bios problem but I want to make sure it's all hooked up right so I can eliminate that issue. my mobo came with another cable, a SATA or Raid or something but I can't use it because my HDD only has an IDE slot.
is there anywhere I can read up on what all this is in laimens terms. I just want to know exactly what all this is before I go and fry a $4000 system, lol.
.............any suggestions would help immensly!

...............although there is that $2000 gateway plasma screen...................
