I'm looking around for a new HDD for my computer since my dell restore partition got deleted. I want a hard drive that's at least 160GB, and runs quiet, the one I have now is extremely loud when seeking so I want one that makes as little noise as possible while seeking. I was looking at some Samsung Spinpoint hard drives but I heard you had to download the mobo drivers for them so I tossed the idea of getting one of those. I'm thinking about getting a Western Digital becaue i've read good reviews about them and the prices are pretty reasonable. I don't want another seagate because I have one in here now and HATE it because it's too loud! and sometimes it makes a weird click noise.
I'm open to all suggestions and thanks for the help,
P.S. This is the drive that i'm looking at right now but if you have one that you reccommend let me know....
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
