If you get a larger drive, go retail and avoid OEM, that way you have some type of warranty... Just make sure you make backups... Best of luck!
Thanks mate .. but all the good pc stores I go to sale only OEM .. thats why the so-called low price .. here OEM might cost as a retail in the US .. or even more .. (what is Bulk ? its like OEM or like Retail ?)
hmm .. and another thing .. how can I keep the HDD temp. down since the computer runs 24\7 almost the entire year ...
Ive got my WD80GB for 4 years now and it was active for 3years 11 months + by now ..
and it doesnt have a temp. monitorin' device so I dont know whats its temp. it might be 70c. :( my SATA2 250GB went up to 70c. last night ..
the newer goes between - 30c. - 40c.
the older goes between - 52c. - 70c.
the much older - doesnt have a temp. montioring :(
ps. thanks for the help ..
and where is every1 else ? I remember that I got alot of advices from couple of people last time I was here ...
