I need to replace the internal hdd on an old 32 bit MacBook, which was running tiger but I plan to install snow leopard on. I have looked on sites like newegg but I don't need a 500 gb drive, just something like 80 gb that will work on this machines architecture. Does anyone know where I could find one of these cheap?

Also, are there any concerns about running snow leopard on a 32 bit machine? It will have 2 gb of ram and has an intel core duo CPU. Thanks!

thanks for the help. the cheapest on ifixit was 250gb for 80 bucks. The model # is A1181, MacBook 13" intel core duo. I'll keep digging around as well.
