    With Perpendicular Recording Technology and a lower price.

    I completely second that recommendation. I've heard nothing but good things about them in regards to noise level and performance. Also, the 5 year warranty is a nice touch.

    I want to get a new drive, too. That drive looks great with a nice price, but I don't have SATA. I feel like it's the standard now. Should I just get a SATA controller or something?

    No. You can get the same drive but IDE: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148139
