I'll be building some new machines in the near future for home and work. As I ponder whether to make the 64 bit jump or not, I'm also wondering if it's worth putting some castoff SCSI parts into a new box.
I have a leftover IBM 36G 15K UW160 drive that I pulled from a file server. I also just picked up an LSI Logic UW160 adapter, which I know works well with this drive. The IBM is fast (albeit a bit loud) and I thought I'd put it into a new workstation build as the system disk, and put a big SATA drive in for storage.
Given how fast SATA drives are these days, should I bother with the SCSI at all? I hate to see a 15K drive go to waste, but it is, after all, 2002's technology...;-)
