    I have a 300GB SATA HD right now... I have a bout 90GBs left and I would like to get another HD to back up my files because I want to try out Vista.

    This is my harddrive..

    What are some things I have to look out for? How should I go about getting another HD?
    Which ones would you recommend on newegg?

    I just got a 200gb maxtor SATA drive at fry's yesterday for $50, all seems well with it. Put it in last night and loaded it up. I think they're on sale throughout today

    Sata II is faster but you wont notice a difference unless your mobo supports it. Tiger direct has a 320gb Seagate i think it is for $80 right now.

    Seagate's been offering 5-year warranties on OEM drives for years now...but that's neither here nor there, I guess.
