    I lean towards Hitachi but either one will probably be fine.

    Also I may have some used 200s around if that's of interest.

    I agree that both are fine. However, the WD has a larger buffer cache and you can never have too much buffer.

    I got a 2004 dell optiplex 280 p4 2.8 but 4 slots pc3200 4gb max memory

    I found the old 40-80 gb ide drives on these old rigs are slow with terrible transer rates. Figure to upgrade while the old stuff is avail and work is buying

    I've got a pair of PATA 200g Seagates, still sealed in the anti-stat bags that I'm probably never going to use ; PM me if you are interested.
