I'm going with a 400GB SATA2 Western Digital - said to be quite, and by my experience it is really little noise except for writing out bytes, a little bit of noise of course. AMD cpu is an energy efficient 4200+ and Thermaltake Sonic Tower heatsink modded with a GlacialTech Silent blade II case ventilator onto it going on constant 950 RPM. Gives no noise audible when it's inside the case (meaning a 19dBA noise level trapped inside the case). :-)
