I am in the process of building my first system. All the parts are on the way, but I forgot to order an internal floppy drive. Can someone please recommend one in particular or at least suggest a good brand for a floppy drive?

You probably won't need one. I have yet to use the floppy drive in my computer and it's almost 2 years old!

I need one for the MaxBlast4 bootable floppy, which is used to format the Maxtor 300gb hard drive I just bought.

I don't use my floppy drive anymore either, and the next system I am building will have no floppy drive. You don't need to use the MaxBlast4 bootable floppy either, you can get the ultimate boot cd (www.ultimatebootcd.com) which has MaxBlast 3 on it. That should be fine. If you need MaxBlast 4, you can make it into a bootable cd using nero I believe.

if you still want a floppy, any brand should do. you can pick up one at compusa, or get a cheap $8 one online. the floppy drive isn't a critical part, and you won't experience much downtime if it fails.

Or, you could get this $22 uber reliable floppy drive :P
