So i have this Seagate 500 GB 7200 RPM which ive been using for the last 5 years, never had any sort of trouble. The thing is the time to upgrade my PC has come and i dont know if replacing this hd for the same but new will worth it. In my country this disks are 100 dollars so i could save that money to use it on the cpu or the gpu.
What should i do?

If it runs fine, then you can keep it. Hard disks can last a long time, particularly when they are powered on 24x7.
