Personally, the gameboxes and client-only machines around here run IDE,
but all the working servers are SCSI boxes. No matter what specs get
waved about, the newest IDE systems can keep pace with not-so-new SCSI
systems only on a lightly-loaded machine with low interrupt latency.
And once you start to swap, forget it.
