Default Hard Drives... Plz Help

Ok here we go...

I plan to install two OS.. one windows and other Linux.
So what you think? Get to hard drives or get one..
I thinking probobly to get two...
Like 250GB each or 200GB each..
and I thinking which brand is better? or which HD is pretty good (250GB or 200GB).

Seagate and Western Digital are usually the recommended brands.

Sure install two OS's why not.

The cost of a 200G vs. 250G is a few dollars, so it makes sense to go with the 250G. As far as brands go, (Seagate & Western Digital) Top 2 Storage device companies.
