I wonder if alienware will be using these. Bet they can get their storage space over 10tbs now.

Now that's a huge hard drive! It's a bit too expensive for my tastes though.

I'll probably end up buying something like that to replace these numerous smaller drives, even 500GB is not very much as far as I am concerned

Mind you this thing probably ends up formatting out to like ~650GB

Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w

250gb sata2 = 99 dollars

540 = around 5 of those

5 x 250 = 1.25TB

its a waste of money but a step in the right direction :-)

cant wait for 1TB hdd's

not to sound negative, but who the **** needs that. unless you download an enormous amount of uncompressed video to your computer for editing/encoding, or have the worlds biggest porn collection, there is no need for something big, not right now at least.
