In my rig: 60GB SSD for OS and games, 320GB RAID0 for any local files
On my NAS: 1TB RAID1 for all of my files (photos, videos, music, etc.)
I don't think I'll ever build another box with much local storage, since it makes way more sense to have storage-consuming media on a NAS where my other devices can access them, and where they are automatically backed up. In my next box, I'll probably just get a single 120GB SSD and be all set.
80 Gig Western Digital (Windows XP Pro SP3, for work)
80 Gig Western Digital (Windows XP Pro SP3, for gaming)
80 Gig Seagate (Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, for 'front')
60 Gig Western Digital (External, for movies)
First PC 20 GB, on a Pentium II. Right now with my 3 year old PC 320GB plus 250GB external. But just imagine even an old 30GB ipod has more storage then my first PC!!! Hahaha ^_^ Gonna buy a new PC soon, planning to get SSD (60GB or 128GB) for programs and games. Hybrid HDD (500GB) for special storage and media then and external (1TB or 2TB) with USB 3.0 for archives.
I have 4.75T in my main computer. My first real computer had cassette tape as storage if you bought one to store your Basic programs; it had 16K RAM. Apple IIe was a big step up when it came -- floppies and Z-80.
2x 640gb Western Digital Black Editions 64mb cache, should have raided them really.
By the End of Year:
1 OCZ Vertex3 120gb, OS and Programs such as Photoshop etc...
1 Western Digital VelociRaptor 450gb, Games, Steam, thats it!
1 Western Digital Caviar Green 2TB, Documents, Pictures, Downloads etc...
Well, Primary machine has an external Sans Digital TowerRaid with 5, 2TB drives RAID5 as well as 6 500GB drive 2, RAID 1 and 4 RAID 5. Planning to build a Windows Server and put the TowerRaid on it to back up everything in the house since Mozy has went to a usage pricing model and currently have 875+GB backed up to Mozy... Other machine has 6 1TB drives RAID 10.
Right now WD800. Don't need much in HDD space. But the SSD should be fast in Windows open time and any software open time. Speed is more important then storage space for me. First PC was a 286 with probably 10 or 20 mb drive.
