Yes, totally. Wow... I'm suprised with that system that you do too! 5400 is for labtops. If you can, get a 10,000 rpm but yeah, 7200 is normal for a desktop.

I have a 5400 rpm HDD for my PS2. You REALLY need to upgrade. I feel like a teacher, or someone, but your system has great potential

I found this for you. I always go with Seagate.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148040

80gb, 8mb cache.

If you want a little better, there are some nice 120gb HDD's a little farther down the page, priced around $70-$80.

I always shop from Newegg, I have ties with them. I've compared prices, Newegg is ALWAYS lower. So are you still thinking about upgrading or?
