    an 80 gig western digital PATA drive costs about 20% more than the segate one.
    i think you can run the ddr400 at ddr333 speeds if you want to :D

    um...

    Western Digital 80GB Special Edition = 75.01
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 80Gb = 57.90

    looks like about 20%. it's a guess but i'm meant to be good at maths or something so i believe myself with stuff like that.

    england's strange with prices anyway. could probably pick up the segate one somewhere for the same as the wd if it'd make you happy :)
