Default hd quesition

what do you guys prefer. a small fast hd for your main drive and bigger second ones or just one big one. im thinking of going with a 160 one with 16mb cashe, but i was thinking with new games coming out that take up so much space should i get a bigger one

i usually use one HD but right now im running 2 because the one with all my games and data got corrupt . i would suggest 2 drives just in case something like this happens.

I would suggest using both. that way if something goes wrong or you need more space on your Computer then it is there. And, you know its there and it is helping your computer!

biggest game i have seen to date is 6gb which was rainbow 6 vegas but i dont own any current gen games other than that. i would just stick with the IDE you got in your sig and a new SATA one for the OS and games. stuff that require load time.
