Whats in it? you should be able to fit at least a 160Gb. Use Acronis True Image to create a Image of the Old Operating Partition, the fit new drive and install the Image All done and dusted, You will be left with the space not used that you create a new Partition for your Data and any new Programs you Load.
I would suggest you buy a 7200RPM drive Hitachi seems good drives
