Genetrally SCSI is faster than IDE drives of comparable age. This appears to be an older drive - 4 GB snd 7200 RPM. I doubt you will see much better performance than a SATA drive. 4GB of storage that i not a lot faster is probably not worththe cost of a SCSI adapter. Even with a current SCSI disk, the performance boosts on desktops are probably negligible. Here are the spec on the disk http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/storage/st34572/Specs.htm#General
