Yea its not. I installed 6 games a few days ago that alone used like 30 GBs in space alone. I'd recommended a AMD 3200 vience for 50 bucks more. But 3000 is very good. YOUR MOBO YOU WILL LOVE IT I ASSURE YOU. I have the extact same one. MY gaming file with just about 6 games is like 20 GBs already. So bigger HD is a must. And they are cheap too not real $$$ so when do you ugprade i'd get a 200 GB 7200 RPM that'll last you a while.

Yeah definitely would, Although a 100GB SATA should do fine.
