depends on your OS really, some dont like partitions over a certain size.
more a personal recomendation here, but try to find a 7200rpm hard drive with an 8mb cache, you mighnt notice the difference too much (if at all) but its there

Yes it is. You can take a look at what other resellers are offering that drive for here (http://www.pricespy.co.nz/pno_1610.html)
