Question Re: Time to build a new computer.

Another problem. My old SG 640 GB is acting up. Don't know how much longer it has to work. NE has a couple deals. I'm just not sure about them a lot of bad ones for both HD. Which/what would you get for around $60?

Default Re: Time to build a new computer.

Both are great drives. I would go with the WD for the five year warranty, though.
