Rotor bearing / assembly

Now I just discovered today that my rear drivers rotor bearing in gone.

Now I wanna now if it's best just to replace the whole assembly with one off parted car or should I just replace the bearing. Which is less of a headache and a drain on the pockets.

Just replace the wheel bearing. A comptent mechanic can do it pretty quick.
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. Itís habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, Iím Nelson, and Iím a drivaholic."

Hmmm i'm pretty sure i need to go to Charlie's next week to get a bearing replaced on my car. When i accelerate there's this woooshing sound and it gets faster and consequently louder as i accelerate.
