Default Hard drive selction

Alright well I desperatly need to get rid of my 40g hard drive and upgrade to a 120 or 160 gig. Tiger direct is doing a great deal on a 120 seagate sata(50.00 after rebate) Are these hard drives good? What would you reccomend. Im looking for sata at least 120 gigs. Thanks

As it's sort of related, is the performance vs. price worth it in the 10,000rpm harddrives vs the 7200 ones? I mean, the WD Raptors are nearly 3 times the cost at the moment for slightly less space. Would now be a good time to buy, or is it better to wait for it to become more popular and thus cheaper?
