Depends, what are you going to do? just put a couple of hdd in, or do a RAID 1, RAID 0??

If I were to choose I would get a 36gig raptor and put my OS on it. along with company of heroes, then just leave everything else on my 320gig.

I think he means, just having an extra hard drive. Not raiding them.

put your media on the extra hd, put your os on one partition of hd1 and games on the other partition. that should optimize performance

You shouldn't do that. You should reinstall windows on the new partition.
