Default Need some Hard Drive Help

I am Looking for a good size/brand Internal Hard Drive.

I will be using my computer for gaming, Recording, and music/movies.

I would like a Large Hard Drive for this.

So what size and brand hard drive should i get?

Im not quite sure, due to the fact this is my first computer build.

Thanks
Noniy

What is your definition of "large"

Some people consider 320gb Large (me being one of them)

But a good choice is the Western Digital 640gb, its one of the fastest drives out there and its pretty cheap (around 100$)

WD 640GB is a GREAT HDD.

I think the Seagate is still in my sig, but I now have that HDD. No problems AT ALL. And a great price on it also.

Just to drive it home, get the WD... My seagate is ten times louder then my WD (thats the only possible way to compare since they are the same speeds).

the WD 640gb is an awesome drive....also the Samsung F1 640gb is slightly better as well as being much quieter. Only catch is I think its a bit more expensive.
