Drop down to the 7200.12 500GB or up to the 1TB model. The 750GB is older and slower.

OK, thanks for the info. Prolly drop down to the 500, don't think I'll ever fill it anyway.

You can get inexpensive motheroards with USB3 and SATA 6GB now. Gigabyte makes the 770TA-UD3 (I just got one myself) for under $100.
