    Thinking of adding an extra HDD mainly for backups and video editing. I
    already have 2 IDE drives internally.
    M/B has a SATA connector.
    Should I buy a SATA drive and fit it internally or an external Firewire/USB2
    drive?
    What are the pros and cons of each?
    Which, if either, will give me the fastest conversion rate from DV-AVI to
    DVD?
