i found that a good way to check if a site is outdated is to see what they recommend for HDs. If they say 3 gigs is enough for the average man then the site is way too old. A fairly recent site should recommend a 40-80 gig HD for the average user.

My rig (getting old):

Rosewill black case with 400W PSU (420W Thermaltake on the way)
MSI Nforce4-ultra Neo4 platnium
evga Nvidia 6600gt pci-e
AMD Athlon 64 3200+ winchester
Corsair ValueSelect 1 GB (2x512) RAM
Western Digital 80 GB SATA HDD (200 GB IDE coming soon)
AOpen combo drive
17\" LCD LG Monitor
Cheap Keys, Dell Mouse, no speakers

Gig \'em and God bless

yeah but alot of people find that music and alot of programs slows down a 40 gig HD hugely and 80 gig still dosen't meet requirements. i have a 3 gig HD which i'm using now which dose me fine because i don't use my computer for much and can't be bothered upgrading yet. but with most people a 120 gig should suit just fine and there not too much more than a 80 HD
