    I've chosen the 100-400Gb option because although my tower has two 250Gb drives, they're configured for mirrored RAID.

    My laptop (which I'm using at the moment) has an 80Gb HDD.

    1-5TB for me.

    Main Rig: 2 x 150 GB Raptors

    File Server: 6 x 250 GB WD (soon to be 8 in RAID 5)

    Spare: 2 x 80 GB

    Office 1 x 60 GB

    Laptop 1 x 60 GB

    Probably about another 100 GB in old my old systems in the loft. (Really need to do something with those)

    my daily use rig has a little more than a Tera byte of storage, 750gb + 500gb + 250gb (bunch of crap on all drives lol).
    my gaming rig has almost a Tera byte of storage, 750gb (music and lightly used games) and 150gb Raptor (OS and Heavy used games)
    my HTPC rig has 4 Terabyte of storage, 4 Hitachi Tera Drives (Movies and Music), 1 74gb Raptor (OS and Applications)

    I will be building a file server after I complete my two projects so that I can run my BTs and web design stuff off of it, it will have 2 Tera bytes.

    Main PC has 980Gb consisting of:-

    250Gb partitioned as 40Gb for OS/Programs and 210Gb for data files (video,photos,music,games)
    160Gb recording live tv (SD+HD quality)
    250Gb location for all the tv I've recorded but not managed to watch yet - BBCHD takes up alot of space, plus used for my video editing
    320Gb External - was mainly another archive device for tv progs, photos before they got backed up to dvd, but also use it to backup my important files/emails with a simple dos script

    Generally I'm ok with space, but xmas is abit touch and go

    My old pc has a 80Gb and 40Gb harddisk plus I have various <10Gb disks lieing around to experiment with

    plus in the loft I have an old Amstrad which has a hard disk with the grand total of 20Mb !!!

    Laptop has 120gb

    Main Rig has 2x250 + 140, so 640GB overall.

    And about 20GB free.... oh dear...

    Interesting thing is, my main rig has an athlon64,a powered ATI x800XL,three HDs (and occasionally a fourth), and a DVD Drive, all running off a single 350W PSU, without problems!

    I'm sure once I get my 8800 it'll be a different strory tho =/

    Tim, are you after raw numbers e.g. 3x300 = 900GB, or real numbers in XP e.g. 3x300 = 837GB?
