&gt; I don't have any serial ata drives and don't plan on buying one anytime
&gt; soon, but I wonder if it might be worth the extra $$ to have this
&gt; capability down the line.  Is the world really going towards SATA and are
&gt; the performance benefits really that great?  I'd bet this card in
&gt; particular will be obsolete by the time I get around to buying a new drive
&gt; (at least a year out), so I'm trying to justify the purchase either way.
&gt; Thanks for your input!
