I have a Dell Inspiron 6400-windows vista and Pc is at 1.6 GHz. What is the maximum hard drive I can install without a noticeable drop in speed.?

I stand to be corrected but the actual size of your hard drive has no bearing on speed.

It is the size of the file not the place to put it, which governs the time taken if you are watching it happen.

What frightens me away from huge capacity HDs is the thought of having to copy or restore, or at worst lose that amount of data.
