Im looking to buy a new hard drive for my rig, and I am hoping to spend 110 dollars or less. So my question is, barring out 10,000 RPM drives (because they are too expensive, correct me if im wrong), what is the fastest drive I can buy, I will mainly use it for booting windows, or linux or whatnot, but something bigger than say 50 gigs would be awesome.
Thanks, cheers

You did not say what type of disk you need (IDE, SATA, SCSI, etc.), but you can find a disk less than that and quite large, especially if you have some time to watch for specials/rebates.

look for sales! I paid $79.99+tax for my 250 GB SATA hard drive. (western digital) It was on sale at Sams club. I do not know the speed of read write function but it is pretty quick.

Thanks for the suggestions. Would it be worth it performance wise to go with a small raptor or similarly fast drive?
