Boot off SATA or IDE? Does it matter?

    I am currently booting off an IDE hard drive, and I have 4 other SATA
    drives on my K9N Neo MB.

    Is it worth sacrificing one of the SATA drives as a bootable drive?
    Would it make much difference? I will then loose some of my RAID
    options.

    Or should I leave it all as it is, booting of IDE and using RAID on the
    4 SATAs.

    Cheers

    I'd leave it alone.If you wanted to squeeze a little more you could move
    your windows cache to the RAID.
