Upgrading My Xbox 360 Hard Drive

So the old 20GB isn't doing it for me. Want to upgrade to a 250GB or 320GB (I have the old Xbox, not the slim one).

Is there any way to buy a genuine 320GB hard drive for the old Xbox version outside of buying a special edition Xbox? The 250GB should do, but if I can get the larger hard drive for a similar price, I figured why not.

Is there a best place to buy a hard drive? I checked out Amazon, Best Buy and eBay, this one looked the most promising:

^ $90 for a new official MS 250GB hard drive.

Is there somewhere else I should be looking? I'm looking for a decent price, possibly the 320GB version and I want to buy an official version to avoid any headaches.

Thanks!

    There is no official non-slim 320GB hard drive.

    If you want an official version for the original design, $90 is the best you'll do. Like @admanb said, there is no 320GB drive for the non-slim boxes.

    Check out GameStop. I talked to to the owner of an independent game store and he was telling me these things pretty much never fail, so you could opt for used/refurb. I've an arcade and was going to buy an HDD, but I'll be using USB sticks until I run out of space (I think it'll do 2 x 16GB).
