If you have did the install go well and did the back up speed to an external HDD meet your expectation??
Thanks for your help
I agree with Pooch, it is worth it, a suitable external HD will work like an SATA 300 internal.
If you have an aged mobo like I do (Asus M2N-SLI), you could have some trouble.
I installed an Asus U3S6 card, hoping to use some SATA 600 in my x8 sli slot, it works under XP, but it conflicts with my second screen under Win 7. Under win 7 I have to disable it (set sli to single card) to be able to use two screens on the gpu. I am still trying to solve that issue.
