Lightbulb new hard drive?

hi, I'm getting a lot of pc games lately but, I only have an 80gb hard drive and it is getting full so, I was wondering that if I get a 120gb hard drive and keep all my old files, will it be possible? Plus, if it is not possible, is it worth it?

As long as you have an open port yes you can add another drive.

Since its a laptop tho you'll need to pop off the bottom panel and physically look if there is another spot for a HDD. Otherwise you'll have to upgrade your main drive.

Why only a 120GB drive?

I would say anything below 320 and the price stays essentially the same. 320's are mass produced while 250's, 120's, etc. aren't really anymore. Mass Production = generally lower prices (look at the price for DDR ram vs. DDR3).
