Before the floods last year, I bought a Western Digital Caviar Green 1.0TB hard drive for $60. That was such a good deal! After the Thailand floods, though, you can't find good deals like that.

lucky you I just had a hdd go bad and had to pay $90usd for a 500gb to replace my bad 1tb hdd which cost me $60usd when I got it, since i'm tight on a budget now and can't get me another 1tb soon

Look on ebay and amazon. You may find a good deal on a 1tb or 2tb hard drive.
