Matter of fact, I was in a Walmart this morning and eyeballed two each 
320 GB SATA (Seagate) and IDE (Western Digital) drives at $98.88 a piece 
sitting on a shelf below the wireless network equipment. I know one 
store that still has 160 and 250 GB IDE drives in the clearance isle. So 
if all else fails, you can always pay retail.
