If you have another hd that you can use for the moment, I would reccommend wating till fry's/outpost has a good hd deal. Like right now fry's has this on sale: Seagate 160GB HD $54.99AR, 200GB Serial ATA HD $99.99. Segate makes awesome hd's with great warrenty. But honestly, shop around for a good hd.


Here's one from amazon:
