    Can anyone suggest a good hard drive for me. I mean, ya I could search around, but this is sooo much easier. Also, no more then $200 would be good.

    at least 2 Megs of on disk Cache (AKA Buffer).
    Seagate, Western Digital, IBM, Maxtor, Quantum are good
    Avoid Fujitsu and Samsung
    80-Gig drives can be had for about $100 with shipping.

    be sure you are getting a manufacturer's warranty
    avoid house or reseller warranties.

    Thanks. Before you posted I was thinking of going with Western Digital. I guess I'll go place my order now...
