    no...not the RPM... both may run at 7200.x.

    PATA offers upto 133MB/s...while SATA offers 150MB/s and SATA II offers 300MB/s ....but it doesn't make any sense as an average HDD gives 45-60MB/s... ;)

    First check Is your Motherboard support SATA or not ? I mean do you have SATA port ?
    Technical clarification showed by samrulez, But we are home user are hardly found any diffrence between them.

    Go for any one of them which your mobo supports
