    Alrite, now i was wondering if i wanted to get a bigger hard drive would it cause any slow downs on my comp? i curently have a 80 gig drive and its getting full of shit from me downloading season after season of stuff. Now i was also wondering if buying an external HD would be as good?

    thanks

    No, it shouldnt cause any slowdowns. Buy a nice 160 or 200GB Seagate with 8mb buffer.

    Get a Western Digital 160GB SATA on an 8mb buffer, for 95 USD.

    I don't know if this will help. Where are you in Canada?

    Anyway... In Canada: Both 160 GB with 8 MB cache:

    Western Digital IDE: http://www.oemexpress.com/Itemdesc.

    Seagate SATA: http://www.oemexpress.com/Itemdesc.

    I too prefer the Seagate.

    If you choose the SATA then just check that you system supports SATA before buying.
