reliable, fast storage?

I recently bought a Macbook pro with a 120 GB 5400 rpm HDD. I do a lot of audio editing and anticipate that I will need to increase my storage pretty soon. I am confused about what solution to go with, so am seeking advice in this from.
What I need:
1. Reliable storage
2. Read/write speeds sufficient to support audio editing / recording
1. Increase the internal drive to a 200 GB 7200 rpm (expensive, maxes out at 200 GB so I might have to rule out this option)
2. Add an external drive via firewire 800 port
3. Use an external drive via a ExpressCard Serial ATA/eSATA adapter
Thanks!I am an Apple customer, not a fanboy.

Either way is a good option. Probably the external FW800 would be the cheapest.Blog and Photo Gallery: http://philolin.me/
