Venice is a very nice core:

but like I said, 80gb for OS/games/random programs, 250 gb later for mp3s, movies, 'acquired' things, etc.

it is a good upgrade for you, and its a good idea if you plan on adding more space in later.

I have an Intel CPU on my desktop and an AMD on my laptop. The AMD isn't as good as the intel specs wise but it seems faster. Weird.

I say get a 120GB + if you can afford it. My next drive will gurantee to be 120GB+. You do download a ton of stuff? If so, a nice big drive should be good.

I can't download much... my ISP is gay and has a 10gb bandwidth cap per month.. so man.. it would take forever to fill my hdd unless I had alot of programs to install...
after 6 months, my dad's 200 gb hard drive, has 50 gigs in use (that is my stuff anyway) so I don't think hard drive space is going to be an issue.

In that case, that hard drive is fine, and as they said, buy another if you need it.

Good luck man.
