    Price seems high. Anitec or NCIX sale price ought to be better. A quick look at Anitec indicated you could get a WD Sata 250G and a cheapo Sata card for the same total.
    WD's used to be noisy but SPCR is saying nice things about the recent ones.

    Futureshop has a sale on a 300GB 16mb Cache Maxtor for $109Cdn,that seems to be what I'll get .I'm just hoping XP or my mobo ,will having issues with that large a Mobo?I've only ever dealt with sub100gb drives.

    Thanks for the help,but rather than buy online I'd prefer brick and mortar.

    Just be sure to use an install disk with the service pack slipstreamed. The later SP's incorporate support for large disks, both for XP and 2K.
