    I am rebuilding two new systems in the next few weeks. One of my existing systems has TI 7 (build 613) and the other has no backup. I will be purchasing a new copy of TI 8 and probably upgrade the other copy. I have had good luck with my current version of TI 7. I will be doing fresh installs of the O/S and software.

    I will be using one SATA drive in each computer. I hope to do the backups to an external harddrive (Apricorn 40GB). Will TI 8 (7?) allow me to do this? Reading through the different posts, I see mixed results with regards to SATA. I think the issue is less so for backing up to external drives.

    Here are some system specs for the two new rebuilds (one for me, one for the kids):
    Asus P4P800-SE
    P4 3.0 Prescott
    1 GB Cosair XMS TwinX (2x512) PC-3200
    80 GB SATA HD (Western Digital or Samsung spinpoint)
    Apricorn 40 GB EZ-BUS-40 (not the mini) Or I can go with WD 80GB Essentials for cheaper (but bigger).
    Win XP Pro (upgrading from Win 98se)

    Realizing there is no definite answers, should I be OK.
    Version 8 ?
    Version 7 build 613 ? (most likely will upgrade anyway).

    Thanks,
