I just used the net install and downloaded everything

The whole system is SCSI, so I'd have to put a PCI -> SATA card in to install the OS. Not worth the time

Not much at the moment, but I'm expanding my movie and music collection. Need to rip about 100 DVD's right now >.>

It is nice not having to delete backups or compress music/movies.

I actually believe you, dude. ANybody with enough money to buy that much hard drives, probably has a sick media center and a ton of blu-ray or hd-dvd movies ripped. Gosh I wish HD-DVD would have won the format war.

I pulled a 7900GT from my server (PCI-e) and replaced it with a "something old" ATI PCI card. When I pulled the 7900GT and prepared to install it, I noticed the capacitors were blown. I can fix it pretty cheap ^_^
