Yeah, that's a good point. I think a 60GB is only $15 more, and a 80GB is only $10 more than that, so perhaps it is a better idea to buy as much as you can on that $:GB ratio. I only suggested it because I have been fine with my 30GB for more than a year and it is full of music and programs. I am running out of space now but luckily I've got a 60GB lying in wait 'til I can buy a better power supply and put it in my rig.

About buying a HDD- you should always look for something with a less than 1:1 dollars to gigabytes of storage ratio. 40GB drives are the cheapest to buy, but have a very poor $:GB ratio. An 80-100GB would have amuch better ratio as you generally pay less than $1 for every GB the drive has. I haven't seen any 40GB drives for $40 or less. They're usually $50-60. Just my 2 cents.
Long gone are the days when they said you'd never be able to fill up a 400MB drive...
