What kind of drive are you looking for? IDE, SATA? Western Digitals are good, Seagate, Maxtor, Samsung.

Western Digital Caviar SE WD2000JS 200GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144416

That should give you more than you need for cheap.

The one I linked from WD is also SATA II, 16mb Cache and has a 5 year warrenty. Only difference is size and price and he said no more than $100

GOING ABOVE $100..........

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136003

There's a 320gb WD 16mb cache SATA II, $109, BUT.......this one does have only a 3 year warrenty. plus shipping.......

Ste - it's only no tax if you dont live in california. If you do then it's tax.
