    My vote goes to IBM - Anything but Western Digital (I've crashed three of them lately, two because of pci speeds(I suspect) and one because of heat (oops))

    I found that my Seagate drive (17.2GB Medalist) was absolutely crap at overclocking - that is, if I remember right...

    Mind you, that was the cheapest type of Seagate drive you could get, so I did I expect?

    My vote would go to Seagate.

    I thought some of the newer IBM and WD's are pretty much the same drives

    let me refine my advice... i agree w/ USS.. if you're going to get a Seagate Medalist you're gonna get crappy overclocking, but on the other hand, if you get a Barracuda or a Cheetah then you're set

    Estimated time it will take me to fix your computer:
    If you leave - 15 min
    If you watch - 1hour
    If you help - 3hours
