all drives are going to fail, its impossible to know which to go for. i would stick WD seagate or maxtor. find which ever one you can get the best price on and has a good waranty. a good sata drive should be 3years, where as a PATA will usualy be a 1yr waranty.

pick one and be done with it.
I hear ya, it's just that I want this new setup to be as close to perfect as possible
I think I'll give Seagate a shot.

Thanks a lot
