THe connector is PCIe. What is the difference between these two? Also there is no conn.ctors on the card so that can't be it..

Thanks!

Yes. I'm looking at SDD HDDs. I want a PCIe just to make use of the never used spots. However, there are two kinds. PCIE and Pata.

I am quite sure there is not a pata connector on that tinny chip.

The internal controller for the drive is PATA. The actual connection to the motherboard is through PCIe.

doesn't really matter.....the internal interface isn't the bottleneck
