  1. Well, on my new system, everything was fine till the good ol' Maxtor corrupted my files. It was not due to heat, as my case temp is 3*F over room tempature, and my Core 2 Duo never hits 100*F. What is the most reliable hard drive with the most space, most cache, for under 100$? Newegg/US E-Tailers only, hanks :D

    It doesn't exist. All hard drives can fail at any moment. Also, software and people fail too.

    Set up RAID and make backups of your valuable data. Use any hard drive brand you like.

    Oh, and the cache size on the HD is totally irrelevant. Look at seek times instead.

    SATA Lol. Sorry I forgot to mention that. 3.0GB/s preferably.

    3Gbps is just a buzzword. 1.5Gbps is every bit as good.
