Oh! I'd RAID0 'em up in my server with up to 6TB of hard drive! *grin*

This is great for MythTV when it comes to recording TV shows over the air. If I have the money, maybe I could store ripped blu-ray discs in the hard drive so I don't have to worry about scratched discs, but I'm 'fraid that's not gonna happen! *grin*

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.
