I don't think it'll really help that much. The main reason you'd want to get a PCI ATA controller would be to address larger hard drives. The Sawtooth's ATA controller can only recognize up to 128 GB. You can't use any space beyond that, and partitioning doesn't help. Since you have a 120 GB drive, I'd say don't bother. If you want to add larger hard drives later, buy a PCI Serial-ATA card instead, because S-ATA has more of a future than ATA/133 (aka P-ATA).
