it really depends on ur motherboard? does it support SATA? u could get this one

that is huge and u wont fill it very quickly, if u wanted to spend abit less just go for a smaller one. or if ur motherboard doesnt support sata get a ide version, but i dont think they do them that big so you woud have to settle for sumthing abit smaller

My preference is seagate but ppl on here like Western Digital and some like Maxtor, people have had problems with all drives just the luck of the draw really

AMD x2 5000+ black edition at 3.3GHZ zalman cnps 9700-NT
Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 motherboard

if money isnt an issue, i would get that seagate posted above, for movies/music/files.

then get a WDraptor to use for the OS/windows/installfiles.

I think that is the best setup also, a Wester Digital Raptor for your OS, and a Seagate for your storage drive. You can get the Seagate drives in all sizes, from 40 to 400 Gb.
