    FYI guys, I just got a free laptop donation from school. It has 11 GB of hard drive space at 4200 RPM...Sucks, but free, so I'm not complaining.

    Re: Curiosity: How many harddrives do you have?

    Well, on my main development / music machine:

    - 5x 300gb WD HDD on a NetCell SR5103 in a Raid-5 configuration (Music)
    - 2x 500gb on-board Raid-1+0 Seagates (Development / VM's)
    - 1x 300gb WD HDD (OS)

    I use the raid-5 array for all of my music mostly. I used to be a DJ and have a TON of music. Once a decent SATA raid-5 controller came out that wasn't the cost of a small child, I pounced on it. I got tired of having hundreds of DVD's, CD's, and music on 20 different hard drives. Worth biting the bullet - and the added bonus of the safety net with a HDD crash is a nice benefit.

    The mirror is for my development files and virtual machines. The drives finally came down to a reasonable price and made it nice to have all the VM's in a single location.

    Other than that, pretty routine config.

    I have 5 Western Digital 120 gig SE drives and 1 Western Digital 500 gig SATA drive in the same machine.

    Re: Curiosity: How many harddrives do you have?

    I've been wondering... Is it time to move beyond SATA I and SATA II and onto one of those newer hard drives?

    By the way I'm a video gamer. Does that change anything?

    Re: Curiosity: How many harddrives do you have?

    What do you mean "newer hard drives"? I was under the impression most HDDs are either IDE or SATA, with server HDDs mostly being SCSI. Is there a new interface?

    I'd say the "newest" ones I can think of are the solid state ones, but they continue to use PATA or SATA interfaces.
