After Walmart I went to Staples to pick up the HD (Everywhere else was closed) but couldn't find the section where their HDs were kept, so I asked an employee if he could help me. So he brought me to the isle where they had them (This guy was the only guy working in the computer accessories and parts section, so I thought he'd know what he was talking about). I looked, turned to him and asked "Do you have any SATAs? All I see are IDE." His response almost made me fucking facepalm right there. "It shouldn't matter, sir. That's just the speed." All I could do was say thanks and walk out of the store, I really wasn't in the mood to deal with any more idiots. I'll go into the computer store tomorrow before it closes.
tl;dr Walmart people are white trash, Staples employees are just fucking stupid
Computer stuff in a B&M store? That's asking for disappointment.
My brother picked up a HDD @ BestBuy not that long ago and told me it was within $10 of what newegg had it for, though, so I suppose there are some places worth going if you need it right away.
