Depends. Once you get involved in torrenting that will fill up quick. Id go with a 320 GB (Or more) Seagate drive with a 16MB Cache. Should last awhile. WOuld also be a good idea to get another similar harddrive as external for data back ups..

If you don't plan on torrenting or P2Ping then 80 or 120 GB's should be enough.

P2Ping - Using programs like Limewire or bearshare to download relativly small files such as MP3 songs.

Torrenting - http://home.quicknet.nl/qn/prive/romeria/top25.htm
Using programs like bitcomet, utorrent or azuerus to download anything legal or otherwise.

Anything, What do you mean? (Granted some of the seen items are free)
See Below.

I have that WD 250GB you chose, and I'm torrenting, but haven't filled it half way....still plenty of space...well a 320GB isn't much more. It's only about $20 more for 70GB more space.

wow..that system will be awesome.
