    Things like this belong in the Newbie section, any 1-sentence questions, etc. I will move it now for you... just letting you know.

    Full guide to PS3 Hard Drive upgrades found here: http://boardsus.playstation.com/play...hread.id=32840

    List of computable drives from NewEgg.com found here: http://www.newegg.com/product/Produc...ubCategory=380

    You should PROBABLY start checking out Sony's site on standard questions like these, since this is not a "hack" or unwanted modification.

    I just switched to 300GB Seagate Momentus 2.5inch SATA

    All was worked fine, switch was done in 10 minutes, plus extra Backup/Restore over 2 hours.

    Price what I paid for HDD is around 130USD.

    2.5 " Laptop hard drives are what will fit into the ps3. If you are looking to use a 3.5" desktop hard drive I believe executer has made an adapter for the ps3.
