Well i myself would buy a high capacity internal hard drive an then put it in a enclosure, external drives that have a decent storage space tend to get pricey. For instance £45 for a 320gb drive an £15 - £20 for a enclosure makes a big difference in the price.

If you where just saving sage details on there or text files ect a smaller drive would be fine, but programs, ISO files, films ect take up a lot of space.

Newegg.com - External Hard Drive, USB Hard Drives, Portable Hard Drive, WD External Hard Drives

There is over 1,000 results on NewEgg. 22 Results for your price range.

There are the results tailored just for you. But i think Saxon is right. Get a normal drive then get a enclosure.

You can storage whatever you want on it, it's a hard drive. I got my self a 1TB Western Digital My Book Essential Edition , because I need the space works great too.

For the amount of GB's you need they are still pretty cheap so your budget shouldn't be a problem.
