Bottleneck??? Huh?

A 1tb drive should be just fine for you.

It really all depends on how many files you have now... and what kind of things you do with your computer.

If you do a lot of HD recording and rendering and download a lot of movies/games/etc... you would need a bigger HD.

But just for general use, 500GB or 1TB is more or less the standard now.

As a note, your HD won't bottleneck your computer... unless your available space is become very low. Then you will find the computer is running very sluggish. But having a 320GB or a 1TB hd, won't exactly bottleneck your computer.

Also if you are upgrading your HDD and it is your only drive, make sure to get a 7200RPM one. Either a WD Black, Seagate Barracude 7200.12, Samsung Spinpoint.. etc.
