Im building a computer from scratch. I was just wanting to know if putting the 6 gig hard drive into my new system would really be worth it. Sounds like if I am getting something like a 200 gig hard drive (which I was planning on) then the 6 gig would be worthless.

Well 200 gigs is alot of space ....maybe if you store Games, Movies or Music on it.

I have a 160 gig, hhd, and so far in 5 years i had it...i only
used up 20 gigs of space, cuz everything is backed up on DVD's & cd-r's......

I have 30 gigs on my laptop, and I run Linux and Windows, plenty of music, and a lot of aps, and I still have a lot of space left
