    Why can the raptor only go upto like 74 GB's.

    Whats the difference between like SATA and IDE or whatever there is.
    Do they have different connection wires?

    The new ones are 150GB.

    SATA does use different power AND data cables.
    SATA (both 1 & 2) has a faster transfer bus than IDE.

    Many (if not most) new motherboards support SATA but if you have an older board you could add a PCI SATA host card.
