Default What should I do?

I was able to get a Maxtor 250GB Serial ATA drive for a good price off another forum's for sale section . . .

It has come to my attention that Seagates are much more reliable . . . should I sell the Maxtor and buy a Seagate 200GB? I lose 50GB, but I get a much more reliable drive . . .

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...144-327&depa=0 = the maxtor drive

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...148-066&depa=0 = the seagate drive i want

i would be using it for normal stuff (OS, games, maybe some videos)

in a couple of months, i'm going to buy an ATi HDTV Wonder. . . I may get another drive if I need to . . . I think 200GB should suffice if I burn content onto DVDs

I would get the Seagate, cause its cheaper, has a longer warranty, lower seek time and its probably more quiet.
