    Considering I've used about 150 gigs in 2 years of owning this pc, and files are getting larger every day, I think I could fill that.

    External 1TB drives have bee around for a while.

    It's not hard to use that much storage space if you're storing lots of video footage on your PC.

    Aye, hell, i have prob 20 GB of fraps from one day of recording some stuff on EVE and Oblivion ( Prob 15 min totoal? ). This could be useful for some one like me :) Though im not going to fill up me 320GB atm anytime soon, and if i do i have about 100GB + in other HDDs i could stick in.

    edit: And yea, 1TB drives have been around for a bit i think.

    <_<

    1. You're only saying that because Xelink just made a thread about SSDs.

    2. If you stopped for just one second to think about it, you'd realise that in the real world, a standard 1Tb SATA drive is much more useful on it's own than an 8Gb SSD. You have to realise that Hard drives and Solid stade drives have separate purposes - since it would be completely impractical to use a solid state disk as storage.
