Default hard drive scratching?

Hmmm...I have a Seagate 120gb hard drive, and its been 1 or 2 months I'm hearing some scratching noises, not clicking. I know clicking is bad, but is scratching as bad? I bought another drive, a maxtor 40gb this time to backup my files and music.
I was just wondering how much time left do you think my hard drive has left. Its been like 1 year now only that I'm using it. Also, what brand do you recommend? Some said maxtor is bad and I should go with Seagate, but after whats happening, I wasnt going to shop for another seagate for sure...Any ideas....?
