I would go Seagate, they are inexpensive, very good quality, and I mean very good quality, and are the quietest 7200RPM drives ever

80/120/160 gig should be enough, how much do you think you'll use?
do you have broadband? broadband really does affect your drive space - I know from experience

if you want something relaible get seagate IDE disk. maxtor IDE are noisier than WD IDE, but i still choose maxtor because they are much faster than both WD or seagate IDE disks
