Let me get this right... you are filling up a 300GB drive with programs for editing? Without any conflicts? Sure those aren't games and music taking up all that space?

Anyhow, to make any 'good' recommendations it would be helpful to know what you are editing - DV, SD, HD? That is a big factor in determining specifications.

If you are concerned about heat, you can get 2 drives and stripe them together as RAID-0. This will give you decent speed for most editing. If you are looking at HD, there are many really good external RAID suppliers listed here at the COW. Just look around your screen.

But in most cases, I would definitely return the 5400 rpm drive for a 7200 or faster.

Also, if heat is an issue in your case, there are many types of fans that will help circulate the air in the case. And you can also get fans specifically to cool HDDs.
