    I'm going to be building a new computer soon, for use mainly for video
    editing. The motherboard I want to use supports both serial ata and standard
    ide hard drives. Is it possible to use one of each? I have a 7200 rpm ide
    drive on hand I was planning on using as my "c: drive to hold my programs
    and I saw a serial ata drive on sale. Would I be able to use the serial ata
    drive for my "d" drive to hold my video files? I understand the serial ata
    drives are faster so using that for my files I assume would be the best way
    to go. I'm just not sure if I can use both drives together on the same
    system. Thanks for your help.

    Third day in a row...exact same question from the exact same poster. Your
    two previous postings of this question got a thread of responses. I would
    ask if you need help using your newsreader to follow a thread, however, if
    you do, you'd never see this either.

    Sorry. Some kind of glitch or something. I never was able to see that my
    first attempt was posted until after the second one. In the past I've had
    posts not show up and thought it happened again.
