Which hard drive should I get?
both of my 20 GB hard drives are FULL to the brim, I want to trade them both in for either this 160 Gb or 200 GB hard drive. The funny thing is, for some reason, the 160 GB is $25 more expensive than the 200 GB, even though it has a smaller capacity. The only difference I see between the two is that the 160 GB has a faster data transfer rate at 150 mb/sec and the 200 GB has 133 mb/sec. Does data transfer rate make that much of a diff, and if so should I just go with the smaller hard drive that is more expensive?

get the 200 GB, the difference in the speed is almost un-noticable but the difference in the size is pretty big (40 GB) and cheaper.

the 160gb is serial ATA , you have to make sure you have a serial motherboard if you were gonna use that.. so just get the 200gb its regular IDE wich is standard
