    Question Recommend me a HDD plz

    I'm after a new HDD for around £40, am only interested in speed and as long as its more than 40GB thats fine.

    (SATA is a possibility I have a Neo2 Plat with 2xIDE drives at the mo)

    Noise/heat/size/smell/colour - not bothered!
    Speed/reliability - yes please!
    Windows XP / 1.1MB Orange BB: E6600 Core 2 Duo Gigabyte GA 965P-DS3P EVGA 8800GTS Superclocked WD 250GB SATA2/300 2GB Corsair TwinX 6400 DDR2 Corsair HX 520 PSU 17in LG Flatron SONY DVD RW DRU-800A Akasa Zen case SB Audigy

    Well I would say seagate for a first bet - 5 years warranty!
    Then I've heard good things about samsung drives, nice and nippy and reliable

    I always say Seagate - 5 year warranty, not too noisy and reliable (in my experience)
