    want to buy a decent 500-250gb hard drive dont want any real old maxtors or the like, want to get one for transferring files so i can install windows again when my mobo and cpu arrive.

    also want one for linux and file storage

    has to be sata the fact i dont want any older driver kinda means it would have to be sata

    max im willing to spend is like £40 inc shipping obviously for a lower spec and capacity ill pay less

    dont want to spend £50 because i can get a new one for that price like
