Default What should I do

I just ordered http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834115218

The only game I literally plan on playing on it is diablo. Which it should be able to handle.

My question is will it take up a ton of space? Also is there anything I should do to it once I get it. One of the reviews said the partitions were bad. I dont know can someone just help me.

you should use it for its intended use.. not pee on it.. diablo will run and wont take up that much space at all (like 2 gigs...out of 120..) and everything else looks fine...

windows XP comes with a tool to convert a drive to NTFS
