Great deal, I need a hard drive for a new rig and this should work well. Are these reliable and quiet?

Seagate's are pretty reliable, and I believe they still offer the best warranties out there - 5 years. A little bit curious, though... you mean you actually don't have any more HDs in the oven?! I've been gone for a while, and this is what I come back to?! What has this world gone to? :D

That's good to know. I'm disappointed that Maxtor changed their retail warranty from 3 years to 1 :(

I already have a Maxtor 200GB to store PVR stuff, just need a main C: drive and the cheaper the better.

well if you're going to set up a PATA raid you need a controller card, or one built in the mobo
