Filled up

Well, ive managed to fill up my 120gb storage drive with general crap.So im going too need a new one pretty soon. Ive got everything that wont fit on the storage drive on my 200GB boot drive atm, but need a reformat one ive got more storage.

So my options are:

An 80gb SATA2 drive, format and fresh install of windows. Then use my 200gb as storage.

A 160GB IDE drive, Plain plug & play storage.

Another 200GB SATA2 drive, More faster plug & play storage.

Oppinions?

TIA

I would go for 80gb for boot drive.

I know it may be more hassel but its much cleaner for the operating system.

Plus its easy to find stuff on blank drives..
