When my family shared a computer it was back in the "blazing fast 500MHz CPU" and "huge 100MB hard drive capacity" days.
I guess with 4-ish people today on one machine storing their own music/movies/files/programs 2TB isn't a huge stretch.

If he is happy to spend the money its a great build. I just keep an eye out, trying to help people save a buck.
I also forgot to put that this rig will have to last a long while so the extra penny is beneficial in the long run.

If he has externals that are fully maybe getting an extra 1TB on top of the 2TB would be wise?
