200GB HD WESTERN DIGITAL 7200RPM 8MB CACHE £75 Which One 80GB HD IBM 7200RPM 2MB CACHE SPECIAL £35 :uhoh:
I would go with the 200 gig because of the size and 8 MB cache. If you wanna save some money i guess the 80 would be fine but in the long run, the 200 gig will do you better although you probably will be able to find a cheaper HDD with the same specs on www.newegg.com OR you can get a 160/120 gb harddrive and you will save money and still have all the space you need.
Well, he's given it in pounds so he probably lives in the UK, where Newegg can't deliver to without extorcionate worldwide Fedex. Aria.co.uk offer some decent deals on hard drives, and certainly a good £20 cheaper than the 200Gb one you've mentioned. http://www.aria.co.uk/ProductsList.asp?Category=147&SubCat=&Name=&Page=2&SortBy=
I'd pick the western digital one since it has 8mb cache and you get more storage for your cash. But if you only need 80gb then jst look for one that has 8mb cache too
i may have to invest in a 16mb maybe i will probably go for a 200gig thanks for the links people
If you only need around 80 gigs, I'd get the WD Raptor. 74GB (There's also a 36GB model) 10,000 RPM, 8MB cache. But they're also $199.99 USD...
Personally i'd go with the Western Digital. Drive space WILL get eaten up more than you think.
