Default thirty-three cent gigs

A bit of a head up. Best Buy has decent Seagate 120gb IDE HDs for $39.99, no rebates involved! $39.99 is the at the resgister price. A rare deal from Best Buy. My local store had plenty in stock tonight. Not SATA, but a **** cheap storage drive. These are going for close to $90 on newegg.

how are you going to plug it into a computer withuot opening the case then, it wont be portable

basically all you use for the external enclosure is for an external hdd :classic: and its a cheaper way to get an external dhd
