Default New harddrive, need some help picking

Yeah, harddrives pretty basic, but I want to get something a little faster than mine. I am hoping to not have to format mine and just add a new one and install vista on it, but my question is, Are the 7200.10s the best? I know those new 7200.11s are out, but not many models, maybe I'll wait just a short time for one of those. D other companies make perpendicular recording drives? Or only seagate? I can only pick out seagate cause of the ".10" or whatever after it. Just need some suggestions.

when did i say i know everything?
EDIT:
its just a better storage density, so any company that uses this will likely be cheaper than ones who dont

Raptors are too expensive. And, I heard those 7200.10s can almost keep up with them. What about parrallel recording, is anyone have any expierience with that?
