Default New Hardrive Question

I am planning on upgrading my harddrive... my specs are as follows

K8M800M
Evga GeForce 6800GT
1 gb RAM (2x512)
AMD Athlon 64 3000+
160GB 7200RPM HD

its been awhile since i've posted... so i imagine my computer has been on a rapid decline to the bottom of the heap lol.... I dont know a whole lot about HDs so if I could get some advice on a good/fast/whatever else one it would be awesome... I plan on continuing to upgrade this beast regularly. I do a lot of gaming. My HD is about 3/4 full now.

Also... how difficult is it to switch hd's as far as reinstalling windows and transfering all files and all that fun stuff?

Thanks a lot.
