That hard drive is getting a bunch of bad reviews about it dying on people. I'd avoid it.

Ive had my new segate baracudas for a couple of days and there runnuing good so far but you could try a 250 gb maybe seagate or what ever is a good price and quality, research a little and look at reviews and you will found out what youve been looking for.
