Need additional HD storage for DL165G7; Hard drive purchase from...?

I have a DL165G7, non-hotswap server.  It has 2 hard drives in it already, 1st has the OS (windows 2008 R2). and the 2nd is 1TB has files.

The 2nd Hard drive is filling up.  So I need to install another hard drive.  When I look at HP's site, this server is suggesting:

508040-001  2TB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive - 7,200 RPM, 3GB/sec transfer rate, 3.5-inch large form factor (LFF)  

(also a 1TB and 3TB).  but this drive is $300-$500

 

What is the difference between this drive and going to a different site and purchasing a simular hard drive?  Say I went to Newegg and bought a 2TB sata drive.  Would that install and work just as well?

 

Thanks in advance

Scott

HI:

 

Of course it will work fine! But HP will not offer warranty to 3rd-party hardware!
