I usually purchase OEM hard drives... You will not get anything else with them software wise... unless there is a bundle with the purchase...
I don't remember what your current hardware setup is... Just make sure you have all the cables\connectors for the new drive so you will be able to utilize it without any issues.
You can use Easeus Partition Master Home edition click here
This tool will clone your HDD and then once done you should have an exact coy of your current HDD on the new one... Once you have tested the new HDD for proper functionality you should remove the data on your old HDD...
Hopefully this helps you out...

Dual boot is a good idea if you want to play around with Linux while still being able to boot to Windows 7 or Vista.

And this western digital 32mb cache
I would spend the money there instead of the lower gb amounts...
And for the Linux... I would try a live CD you can boot right in to them like a normal OS and you can give it a try without any changes to your computer...
Once you have determined if you like it or not you can install it...
Here is a link to Puppy linux
This is a very light OS it can run on very old computers and still run speedily...
And one for linux mint
This one is a more comprehensive OS and requires more system resources but less than windows...
Just down load the files, and burn them to disk...
Give it a try Good luck
I hope this helps...

i just want to make sure im not cutting off my capabilities to do something that i normlly could do on XP. i dont have any PC games, so that shouldn't be a problem, and really all i do is manage neflix, itunes, and sometimes like to get into paint. truthfully, i built the computer for the experience. i love them. so i decided to build one. i love it, but i dont do much. so i really think this will be a good step forward. any suggestions as to hobbys to get into on the pc?

As for hobbies on the PC, there are many different things you can get into. If you think removing viruses and trojans may be interesting, consider joining Geek U here at GeekstoGo. Playing with Linux can also be a hobby on it's own, since it is open source you can customize your operating system any way you want.
To be honest the possibilities are endless when it comes to computer hobbies. Anything you're interested in outside of computers can usually relate to computers in some way.
