    Ok, now i'm looking for my Hard drives, seen these, will they be ok?

    Seagate 7200.10 320GB SATAII/300 8.5ms 7200RPM 16MB Cache - OEM

    and

    Seagate ST3500630AS 500GB Hard Drive SATAII 16MB Cache 7200RPM - OEM

    if not ok, what would be in the seagate line, are Maxtors better or just as good ?

    any advice is greatly received ;)

    Some retailers still sell Maxtor drives...although I'm not sure if Seagate still manufactures them under the Maxtor name.

    However... http://maxtor.com :D

    Seagate are continuing to manufacture and distribute drives under the Maxtor brand. I believe they are using Maxtor as their "value" brand and will use their own brand for the "premium" product (i.e. the newer technologies and longer warranties will be on the Seagate drives).

    Ahh okay. So I suppose the answer for the OP would be to go with Seagate then :p
