Right on! the 1tb will hold all of my games/programs. While the 3tb will hold all of my recordings. But I have considered a 4tb and still am.

Good to have a plan. Me I'm a drive whore and I mean that, 12 drives and countless usb, micro and std. sd cards as well as some CF's plus for mobile I have at least (4) 1tb usb drives. Most are 1tb with (2) 2tb and (1) 3tb spinners.

I have ordered 3 of the HDD.15 4TB drives and all 3 have passed rigorous long/short read/write tests and have performed flawlessly since. They make great storage drives.

I would not touch a 4TB drive with a 10 foot pole. Multiple drives is the way to go. And a couple of SSDs - at least 1 for the OS.

Building your own computer
How novice friendly are modern computers to build yourself? Much if any soldering needed?

First off, My power supply was 50 watts more than my last, but apparently wasn't SLI ready, so I have a single graphics card stuck to the board (Nvidia 460 single Gig). Hasn't done as well as I had hoped. So I'm thinking you have to buy power supplies...

Building a computer
I toasted one of my computer so I figure I'll take the old 5 year old case and put a i3 CPU which I think is better than my E6550 Intel. I was going to build a i5 or i7 but I'm not sure about the case, if I should get a new one or not. If I should get a new case then I'll go with a i5. It's been 3...
