http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16822148140 I have that drive, and its been working great. Though, you will have to provide a bit more information for the best drive for you: what interface? what size? what price?

ideally, my budget is $150, although I would like to keep it under a hundred. Also, interface wise my motherboard supports a lot of sata connections and not many ide. Infact, my ide channels are full, so I guess my next drive should be sata. I would also like something fast and responsive, with at least 250gigs.

Well its the Seagate that Smitty posted. Its a 7200 Rpm hdd with 16 mb Cache Thats pretty standard today. If you want something faster with 10000 rpm your cohice is western digital raptor. But since its a 10000 rpm you get it in max 150 gb (and that one is going to cost) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?DEPA=0&type=&Description=western+digital+raptor&Submit=ENE&N=0&Ntk=all&Go.x=0&Go.y=0

yeah, looks like the 320gig sata2 segate perpendicular is my best bet. It even rivals the raptor on boot time and transfer speeds. Is it quite?

Sata ore sata II There really is no point in buying a IDE HDD today.
