    I am going to get the SeaGate Momentus 500GB 7200rpm very soon. The price has been dropping steadily. newegg has it for a tad over $100. Ebay has them for as little as $70 (brand new) if you take the time to bid.

    I have seen "buy it now" for $93, plus if you do the bing.com cash back, you can get like $8 -10 back, although it takes like 60 days to get, but it DOES work!!

    Just got this Hitachi 500bg 7200rpm drive from Newegg (LINK) for $80 including free shipping.

    Now what is the best way to install it? Clean install or copy everything to new drive?
