You're not being asked to buy a new hard drive, just try a new cable.

You mentioned you recently had a power supply upgrade, its a long shot but try moving the SATA cable away from the power connectors. It might be an issue of interference

Also maybe get some canned air and give the SATA connections a quick spray out. Also try combinations of various SATA cables and mobo ports. Be sure they're all the way on and not almost all the way
