Default Need a new harddrive

Should I get a completely new one or add to my 80gig?
The 80gig is only like 2mb cache and I only have like 6gigs left on it
Was thinking this one, or recommend to me?

The Western Digital is a good hard disk.I suggest you don't use any more the old 80gig disk.

Looks great to me! And, yes, I would add, not replace.

I would buy the 320gb and use it as your main and the put the 80gb in an external enclosure as a slave
