I am buying a new computer for an audio werkstation and am STILL confused over hard drives.

this latest test in toms
sugests that that there is no real advantage to SATA but its GOT to be faster than my current baracuda 4 ata 100 right?
My problem is track count in my daw.
surely the 8 mb cach alone would make the baracuda 5 faster.

Please help.
