Sure you can do that. Windows 7 will install over Vista, just make sure you don't reformat any harddrives. Just do the install... not formating.

Worth it depends on how you use your computer... and also what hardware you have. Windows 7 is better certainly... but if budget is tight and you only use it for general computing/net surfing, save the money.

You might consider samsung F3 drive. Current champion of the 7200 rpm drives, if I am not badly mistaken. I personally have a 1TB and 500gb on a relatives pc assume sequential transfer rates.

yeah, 500 gig platters make a big difference, but id rather save up for a smaller ssd boot drive when prices drop a tiny bit. the caviar black is quite fast enough for now.
