People like you were saying the same thing back when the first gigabyte hdd's were coming out.

Give me a dual core CPU and a unlcoked copy of FRAPS and I will use that in a week or so from my experience. A TV card will get thrown in the mix too.

As for the comment of the numerous hdd. You will need to get a SATA RAID card as well included in the price, and the fact that a single lump of storage is more useable than several hdd.

I believe as far as desktop hdd's go, yes it is. I read that they are planning on having a 200GB for $104 (MSRP) and will be phasing out all large capacity longitudinal drives.
