    I should be recieving my new hard drive in about an hour. I'm wondering if I can replace my 120GB HD with the 320GB and then just boot off of the Snow Leopard disc?

    Also, since the drive that I bought seems to have some problems with the OS X battery saving feature, it apparently writes the drive or does some cycle stuff like thousands of times a day. This means that it will die quicker. Can anyone tell me how to check the amount of cycles I've used?

    You've probably figured this out by now, but to answer your first question - yes.
