Default Which HDD's

I would be getting 2. Which should I get?
They would be RAID-0'd
figured id get 2 160gb for 80 each instead of 2 80bg for 60 each

Nice, the price is great along with the reviews. Why wouldn't you just get a 300GB hdd instead of getting two 160s.?

Get the seagates, awesome drives. I bought 2 120gb Cudas awhile ago and put them in RAID0 and they are awesome.
