I'm currently running a Seagate ST340810A 32.8GB ATA100 5400rpm for storage. I really need something bigger and looking at all the HD's out there I have no clue what I should buy. I'd be looking for something under $100 with a good GB/speed ratio.
The bigger and faster the better.

I plan on using it for storage/VHS to DVD/P2P

Any suggestions on a good product?

K8T Neo
VIA K8T800 Chipset based
64 Bits
Sata Raid

Thanks for the help!!

Different brands of HDDs are basically all the same. Seagates usually come with a 5year warrenty insted of the usual three years. Since your computer is SATA capable you will definatly want to grab and SATA HDD. I would either go with this 320GB for $90: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822148215 or this 400GB for $100 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822148246.
