Question Harddrive suggestions?

Can anyone suggest me a new harddrive? Right now I have an IDE 160gb. Im not sure what brand, but I think it may have a bad sector. I use this pc to game. Can anyone recommend a good, fast SATA HDD? I want atleast 160gb and idk what to look for in HDDs. thanks again

Thanks for the thread because I was actually wondering what everyone thought about HD's. Ventriac had already suggested the WD 640 to me, so I think that it will also be me choice for my new build as well.
