Title:

What speed of new HD?

Text:

I have to replace my hard drive, I'm growing out of the current one.  I was looking at a 500GB 7200 RPM, but I've read that the faster drives generate considerably more heat.  The 5400 gets incredibly hot at times so I'm a little wary of the 7200 option.  Any ideas, please.
