Hello Everyone!
I am building myself a nettop to use as a 24x7 download machine. This is the motherboard I'm using.


ZOTAC IONITX-T-U Intel Atom D525 (1.8GHz, Dual-Core) Intel NM10 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Here's the case I'm using.


M350 Silent Fanless VESA Mount Enclosure Mini-ITX Case
http://www.ebay.in/itm/M350-Silent-Fanless-VESA-Mount-E...

I need it to be as small and silent as possible and so I choose the above two stuff. As it is only gonna be used for downloads I went with that motherboard (Need the wi-fi!).

I'm looking for a 750GB HardDrive for it. Can you guys help me out please? I'd be more than happy if you guys take over and select one for me and give me the newegg link :p  My first time building something and don' want to mess it up!

Thanks a lot!

All of the hard drives in the above link are 3.5 inch whereas the case I posted supports only 2.5 inch.

can you please tell me if "WD Scorpio Blue WD5000BEVT 500 GB Plug-in Module Hard Drive" is a good choice?

It looks to be the best rated 2.5 in form factror HDD from WD at Newegg, so I'd say yes on other people's recommendations.
