I've heard that one, you cannot or you don't need a terabyte in consumer use.
Now, the second i heard this(of course this is coming from a friend who is more or less jealous of me) i wondered, do i need to make any existing changes to my current rig?(see signature below)
And, as another question, exactly how much can i put onto a terabyte. Seeing that Alienware Computers has now put together terabyte machines and accompanying them are astronomical calculations of how much space it is exactly.
"Massive 2.5 Terabytes of data let you store more music, games, pictures, and movies.
Store More Music: 609,400 songs*
Movies: 610 movies*
Games: 407 games*
Average file size: 4MB per Song, 4GB per Movie, 6GB per Game."
If 2.5 gives you those numbers, would 1.2 give me the same results? and as i mentioned in another forum post, Iam not going to do 500's iam going to do 320's in raid. so, should i stop after i reach critical mass on my hard drive space?
Another note, my tower cages hold up to 6 3.5 hard drives. I have one 250 in there now, leaving me 5 slots left.
