I finally have windows running on my recording PC again. The service tech said the main hard drive has a bad sector, so i want a new one. I dont want this to happen to the next one i buy so, i want to make a smart investment.

in my opinion a good rpc requires 2 fast,good >=7200 rpm 8mbc hdd drives...
the prob is the noise...
have you ever heard the noise a pc with 2 sata 10000rpm hdd makes???bad....very bad....
Sep 26, 2004 10:29 am What type of drives does it have now? IDE or SATA?
If IDE get a 7200 RPM Seagate or Maxtor drive. Seagate is commonly accepted as "the best", I personally have had better luck with Maxtor than Seaget, so it's all subject to opinion.
Noise can often be controlled by a better case. I have a solid rack mounted PC case, two 7200 drives a couple CD drives and 3 or 4 fans and it's very quiet.
Cheap cases suck, they rattle, don't screw together securely...yuck...
